Looking for any information for Chiarina Alfieri. Arrived in USA at Ellis Island March 1921. Her mother was Regina Alfieri. Father was Guiseppe Alfieri. Born 5/12/1895. Believe she had 1 brother and 4 sisters in Comiziano. She had a nephew Sam Alfieri who lived in Niagara Falls Canada who returned to visit Italy several times. Believe one of her sisters was named Illuminari ( not sure of spelling) Also believed her father died when she was 1 year old.
my greatgrandmothers sister Assunta Reppucci (b.1888) married Patrick Alfieri (b.1881)...(changed to Alfred) she was born in italy but lived in boston and then chelsea, massachusetts......perhaps a connection somewhere?
surnames: Giggi, Reppucci, Ruggilo, Strati and Laurino
maternal (mtDNA) haplogroup W
My grandmother married Severino Nappi in Brooklyn when she cam to America in March of 1921. She had a brother who came here first and then she came over later. I do not have any information about the brother. They were from Comziano in Italy and lived in Syracuse, NY. Her nephews were Sam, Frank and Carmine Alfieri who worked in Niagara Falls.
Dear Anappi, unfortunately I've just got this message, realizing It's dated 2011... Hope you can see this message anyway. You talked about Sam, Frank, adn Carmine from Comiziano. Well, Frank, Francesco in Italian, was my grandfather (the father of my mother). These days my mother asked me to check any information about Alfieri Family in Canada (they had a famous restaurant called "Capri" near Niagara Falls, now closed I guess). Anyway my mother visits Comiziano every year, maybe she can get info about Chiarina Alfieri, I think someone there can help you. Ciao
My godfather was Sam Alfieri who owned the Capri in Niagara Falls. My mother is Antoinette Nappi Sweenie, living in Fulton NY. When does your mom go to italy? My mother was supposed to go with Sam, but he passed away and the restaurant has been closed. She has no idea about any of the family members other than those at the Capri. ANY information would be greatly appreciated. My email Kruneare@yahoo.com

My name is Karen Runeare from Fulton NY. My grandmother was chiarina (Alfieri) Nappi who was married to severino(Sam) and was your dad's aunt from Syracuse NY. My mom is her daughter Antoinette (Nappi) Sweenie, we came to Niagara Falls a few times several years ago. She talked about going back to Italy with Sam before he passed away when we were last at the restaurant. She is very interested in any info. Kruneare@ yahoo.com
if I follow this correctly then your mother and my father were first cousins?? is that correct? What is your mother's name? And your grandmother Chiarina would have been sister to my grandfather Michele?
