Looking for information on Munno and Vollero (Vollaro)

Postby lljg » 04 May 2010, 21:37

Hi. My Great-Great Grandparents were from Santa Maria Capua Vetere and I am trying to find their ancestors.

Munno (Maria, my great-great grandmother and I know she had a brother Antonio)

Vollero (but it was spelled Vollaro on the New York Passenger's List -- this is my great-great grandfather's surname -- his first name was Umberto. I know nothing about his ancestors.)

I'd appreciate any help. Thanks! :D

Hi Jean,

So you have the ship manifest? Can you provide some details like their year of arrival, estimated year of birth for you GGGPs? Where did they live in the US? The more clues you provide the better we can help.

Looks like Umberto was going to Connecticut (Stamford?) to brother-in-law Luigi di Pennave (sp?).

Thank you very much. I should have told you that I do have this information. I just began a family tree on ancestry.com. You are welcome to go to my tree -- it's under "jarisko" as the user and the tree is the "Rusnack Family Tree"

Let me know if you need more information.

Thanks again!!

Hi Jean,

Sorry about the duplication...

Since you have your GGGF's birthdate and comune, you can write directly to Santa Maria Capua Vetere and request his birth and marriage records.
You should write in Italian and send an addressed, but NOT stamped, return envelope. Here is a link to form letter in Italian.

Address:
Ufficio dello Stato Civile
Comune di Santa Maria Capua Vetere
Via Albana 90
81055 Santa Maria Capua Vetere CE
ITALY

Hi Tessa,

THANK YOU SO SO VERY MUCH!!! I truly appreciate all of the information and help -- and don't worry about duplication. It's better to get it twice or more than not at all!

Have you sent for records to Santa Maria Capua Vetere? Is it as easy as it looks?

Thanks again!! I'll keep you updated! I'm SO excited!!

Jean

Hi Jean,

You are very welcome! Always glad to help. :-)

I have sent away to other comunes for records, but not to SMCV. Some comunes take longer than others to reply...some don't reply at all (for a variety of reasons). Most often there is no charge for these records, but a suggestion has been made to include an International Reply Coupon, available at your Post Office (about $1.20) which might cover the return postage. There are some comunes that will require some payment for sending records, but I haven't found that to be so common.
There are some posters here at the forum who have found the LDS microfilm records from S. Maria Capua Vetere to be very good. Once you find a record there you can post it here for translation.

Good luck!

Hi Tessa,

Thank you so much. I love this forum and I only wish I found it a long time ago! I truly appreciate your help and I wish I could help you. Let me know! Not that I believe I have great genealogical skills! I'm trying though. I feel like a detective who is succeeding, slow and steady!

Anyway, thanks for the information about the records - -and the Good Luck! I will certainly keep you posted. And I know I'll be back for translation. By the way, do you trust the Google Translator site? A member of ancestry.com suggested I try it. But, I have no way of knowing if it is accurate -- or even close.

Google translator, as most translators, should be used to get some meaning from the text...not for precise translation.

Here are a few others you might like to try.

Hope this helps
