Please help with the last name Raucci

Postby Raucci » 30 Jun 2010, 19:07

I'm trying to start to find out about my grandfathers family since I don't know anything about them.

My grandfather is Joseph Raucci Sr. out of New Haven, CT he died a few years ago and leaves my grandmother Roberta Burlock ( her madien name)..Two sons Joseph Raucci Jr., Michael Raucci, and a daughter Vicky Raucci.

my father is Joseph Raucci Jr. but other than my family I know nothing and no one will tell me about my family other than it's not important.

So if anyone can help I would love to know my family tree of the Raucci

It appears that your grandfather and his brothers and sisters were born after the 1930 census? (the last published census so far)
Unless you know your great grandparent's first names or we can find an obituary with their names included, you may need to order a couple of vital records (birth or marriage) from CT or a SS Application. If we can find your great grandparent's US records we may be able to find out more about where your family was from originally.

The name "Raucci" exists today in Italy. It is most concentrated in the Region of Campania, mostly in Caserta Province.
Use this site...type in the name where it says "cognome"

RAUCCI is derived from the base surname RODOLFI and is listed in the Italian surname dictionary.
The RAO and RAUCCI surnames are directly from the South of Italy with roots of both names FIRIDOLFI which is a feudal family name from Firenze in the 12th century emanating from the Salento area of Puglia and calabria.
