FARUOLO in Grassano or Savoia di Lucania, Basilicata, Italy

Postby lisamc6 » 16 Jun 2010, 03:03

Looking for birth certificates or marriage certificates - any documents that place my family in Italy.

Rocco Faruolo (born. 27 Oct 1857 Italy died. 14 Jan 1946 Brooklyn, NY) married Filomena (b. Aug 1867 Italy d. before 1930 Brooklyn, NY)
they lived in Grassano, Basilicata, Italy in 1876 before they immigrated to the U.S.A. on the S.S. California leaving from Naples.

Their children that would have been born in Italy were:
Rosa (b. Dec 1885 Italy d. 1985 Brooklyn, NY)
Francesco (b. Dec 1889 Italy d. ?)
Michele (b. Feb 1892 Italy d. ?)
Girolamo (b. Mar 1896 Italy d. ?) I believe he was also called James or Jim

Rocco's parents were:
Frank Faruolo (b. 1803 Italy d. ?) and Rosa Turco
I believe they immigrated to the U.S.A. in 1879 and I believe they were living in Savoia di Lucania, Basilicata, Italy at the time of their son Michele's marraige to Maria (below).

Rocco's brother was:
Michele Faruolo (b. 1855 Italy d. 3 Oct 1919 Brooklyn)
He married Maria Agoglia (b. 1859 Italy d. 11 Sep 1918) on 18 August 1879 in Savoia di Lucania, Basilicata, Italy

Their other children include:
Otto (b. 15 Apr 1900 Brooklyn d. Dec 1969), Anna, John (b. 1905 Brooklyn), and Marie (b. 1911 Brooklyn)...

Any information you have would be helpful! Thank You!
Lisa

There are microfilmed records available for rental through a local LDS family history center for both the town of Grassano and the town of Savoia di Lucania. While the last residence on a passenger list may not be the town of birth or marriage, since that is the information you currently know, you may want to rent at least one roll of microfilm to see if your ancestor's records are in that town.

Registri dello stato civile di Savoia di Lucania (Potenza), 1809-1910
Authors Savoia di Lucania (Potenza). Ufficio dello stato civile

Registri dello stato civile di Grassano (Matera), 1810-1929 Grassano (Matera). Ufficio dello stato civile

the above info is from the library catalog at www.familysearch.org

I would, for example, retrieve off of the microfilm the marriage record from Savoia di Lucania for Michele Faruolo, as there may be additional info about the parents and their towns on that record.
