PETRONE family in Benevento / Rhode Island

Postby Petrojo » 23 Mar 2010, 23:36

Hello, this seems like a very nice forum!

I am looking for information on my great grandfather's parents in Italy.

His name was Leone Petrone (1888-1945). According to Castlegarden his last place of residence was "S MACOLA C" which I am guessing is San Marco la Catola but I'm not sure. Last province of residence was Benevento.

He came to Providence, RI in 1900. I have done some research on his life in the United States. He was a barber, married Antoinetta Cicchetti (Nov. 15, 1908) and they had several children (Giovanni, Pasquale, Benjamin, Felice, Antonio, Anna).

Thank you! :D

Welcome to the forum! :-)

You might want to explore the microfilmed records of San Marco la Catola at the nearest Mormon Family History Center. For a small fee you can rent the film for a month. The records can only be viewed at the center. Records are available for 1809-1929, and are in Italian.

Thank you very much for providing me with some direction! I will certainly follow up on it. According to the site there is a Family Research Center in my area. :wink:
