Raffaele Gargiulo

Postby ckolesa » 28 Oct 2010, 00:09

I just came back from a visit to Sorrento and Capri. I was very surprised at the amount of times that the name Gargiulo appeared. I have been looking to trace my Grandfather's family. His name was Raffaele Gargiulo. I saw a War Monument on Capri that had the name Raffaele Gargiulo on it. I thought that by some chance it was his father. Is Gargiulo a very common name in that part of Italy? I got some information about when my grandfather immigrated to the US but nothing about him personally or his family in Italy. He only said that he was from Sorrento. He was born I believe on October 21, 1880 in Tremont, It. When he came to America, he worked in the produce business. I would be very interested to know his parents names and if he had other family members.
Thank you in advance if you can be of any help to me.

Gargiulo is spread all over Italy with a very high concentration in Campania (the region comprising Capri and Sorrento). The white pages show 260+ entries for Gargiulo in Sorrento (10 are Raffaele) and 37 in Capri (2 Raffaele).

I believe the correct place was Tramonti, Salerno Province, Campania Region:
