I was reading your post above regarding the Serrastretta information. My Grandmother was from Serrastretta.
There are Scalesi's in my family, from Serrastretta. Angelina Scalesi, born around 1870, died Nov. 1944. She married Peter Molinaro. Angelena had a sister Filomena & a brother Natale.
Angelina & Peter had Filomena (my grandmother) born 1900, Natale born 1894, Antonio, & Mary.
Also, somewhere along the line, although I do not know where, there is a link to Aiello.
Here is the info I have on the Aiellos. Angelina Scalesi had a sister named Filomena. Filomena Scalesi married Natale Aeillo. Natale & Filomena had 4 children:
Joseph - dob March 3, 1904 - Married Carol Santo 6-26-1926. Died 12-18-83
Peter - dob 1-15-1906 - married & Divorced Thelma - Died 3-5-1983
Michelina - dob 8-17-1913 - married Albert Bruno - Died 5-3-1989
Theresa - dob 4-25-1915 in Phila. - Married Maron george (I think he was a professional Boxer, but I don't remember the name) - No information on death.
In 1913 Filomena Molinaro, along with her mother Angela Scalese, emigrated to Phila. and stayed with Natale Scalese, at 1137 Federal St., Phila., PA. Also, in 1913.
I know some of these people lived in the Phila. area.
Angelina's mother was named Theresa, that's all I have on her.
Since we have these last names in common, we could be on different branches of the tree. I have been using Roots Magic to keep track of all this information. There is so much information that sometimes I don't remember who is who.
I also have information on the children of the Aiello's listed above. I can give you the info you want it.
I know this is an old thread, but I will give it a try. I have been researching my Serrastretta roots and have hit the brick wall. But I recently found, in addition to my Scalise and Aiello roots, that I also have Fazio roots. It seems that the parents of my ggf, Pietro Molinaro, were Antonio Molinaro and Francesca Maria Fazio.
Hi! I am new to this site looking for my Serrastretta roots. The name is Gallo and I know that they are one of the founded families of that town. I am wondering how I can find my connection to that particular family? Any ideas?
Tom, Searching for my connection to the Gallos of Serrestretta. My great grandfather was Francesco Gallo, born around 1862. However, I think that he was born in Belsito. He married Maria Fabiano from this area as well. Can you help me? I have not been able to find any specific links to Serrastretta, but believe this is where the family originated. Thank you for any help you can give me. firstname.lastname@example.org
