Hello, I am helping my mother-in-law look for her family in Italy. My MIL's fathers name was Pasquale Cammarano. He came to the US with his brother John. He had a sister in Italy named Maria. She doesn't know the names of her grandparents, only that they lived in a town that she said "sounds" like Ashea. She doesn't know the real name. Can anyone help or point me in the right direction? Briana

Found a Pasquale that arrived in 1905 from Ascea... another with the name that lived in California. If you could indicate where Pasquale settled in the US, we might be able to find some census info.
Also, Ascea is near Salerno and its records are not avialable on microfilm...you will have to write to the Commune to get them. I found a Pierluigi Cammarano who is a student and lives in Ascea...his e-mail is email@example.com He had responded to a message board at Ancestry.com for Cammarano and had suggested for them to write to him directly. So he probably would welcome your note.
It's worth a try! If you can give other info, we will check Pasquale out in the census for you.
Hi: just says Essgee that probable Pasquale Cammarano emigrated 29 Sep. 1905 age 38, but not with brother John(Giovanni) but with Grazia Cammarano sister it goes from Emiddio(Emidio) Laurito husband of Grazia and brother in law of Pasquale...in travel togheter with many persons from Ascea...are this Pasquale your ancestor?
..If this are your ancestor, you can to obtain more info sending an letter (or fax +39 0974 977308 ) to Ascea Common:
Via XXIV Maggio
84046 Ascea (SA)
and you request "Richiesta accertamento anagrafico di Cammarano Pasquale classe 1866/1867 nato a Ascea (SA)";
..in Common make search birth registry and you discovery Pasquale relatives names and Pasquale exact birthdate...
Pasquale lived in Staten Island, with his wife Geneiveve(Gotto), and they had 3 children, Patrick, a son who died and then Josaphine(my MIL).
I am hoping to find a current address do that my MIL and her brother can find family and correspond or visit. Even to just know.
Just got off the phone with her...Pasquale was born in the US, and his parents took him back to Italy. His father's name was Frank (Cammarano) He then returned at age 21 and resided in the US permanently. Giovanni was already here.
So... I guess I'm looking for family of Frank and Charles Cammarano in Acsea. I don't know if they had anymore siblings.
Sorry this is choppy. She doesn't remember alot, and she didn't ask her parents any questions as a child.
Thank You, Briana
