Looking for information on Domenico Francomacaro

Postby franco1 » 09 Mar 2011, 01:49

Hello! I am brand new here and working on a research project for my husband. His Francomacaro side of the family came from Piedimonte d'Alife. I have ship records that Domenico Francomacaro arrived in US on 4.11.1898.

I am interested in finding as much information as possible on the Francomacaro family from that region. I think his father's name was Giuseppe with possible birth date of 1850. My husband visited the area in the early 1970's with his grandparents when they visited family and would like to find them again. Any direction would be great!

Thank you!

I am interested in finding as much information as possible on the Francomacaro family from that region.

If you want to do some of the research yourself for the Francomacaro ancestors...

The LDS (Mormon) Family History Center has available for rental and viewing, microfilms of the civil registrations for Piedimonte d'Alife from 1809 - 1929.
Births, marriages, deaths, etc.
http://www.familysearch.org/eng/library ... iedimont++

You will need to go to the nearest FHC to order the film, and return there to view the film(s) when it arrives.

The village of Piedimonte d'Alife belongs to the municipality of Piedimonte Matese , province of Caserta , region Campania .

Found birth record for Domenico Francomacaro (at Ancestry)
Born 17 January 1874 at 1 PM to
GiovanGiuseppe Francomacaro, who was 32 years old and a laborer, the son of Antonio;
and to his wife Maria Maddalena (last name is hard to read but could be d'Avino), age 24.
They gave the child the name Domenico.
The child was presented at the town hall to the official on 18 January 1874 (which is the date of the record) by Giovan Giuseppe

On this image it is the document (all handwritten) that begins on the bottom left side...)

While looking for Domenico's birth record I also found another Francomacaro born in 1874. Possibly a cousin - looks like they have the same grandfather (Antonio)

Maria Diana Francomacaro, born on 7th of June 1874 to
Raffaele Francomacaro, son of Antonio, age 28, laborer; and to
Gabriela Gagliardi, daughter of deceased Giovanni Antonio, age 27.

There is a notation on Domenico's birth record stating that he married in Piedimonte d'Alife on 7 June 1900 to Cecilia di Buccio.

Here is the manifest for their arrival in US in July 1900 (looks like Domenico returned to Italy to marry)

Tessa78,

Thank you SO much for this information!! My husband will be very excited about this news. Cecelia was his great grandmother so this is definitely the right family. I will certainly explore all the avenues you have given.

Dominico's son James J Francomacaro married Francis Romano whose father Paul (Paolo) Romano came from Cesa? near Naples in 1901. Paul had married Ann Puco also from Naples area and my husband lived with his great grandparents and then grandparents in NJ for the first 3 1/2 years of his life. Both the Romano's and Francomacaro's are very special to him.

Again, I really appreciate all your help as I piece together this family for him.

Glad to have helped :-D

Cesa is in Caserta Province, Campania Region - only about 14 km from Naples...

Do you have approx. DOB for Paolo Romano?

Here is address to write for Romano birth records:

This is exciting :D I had no idea I would have a response with info so quickly! Yes, I have a bit more info on Paolo Romano. He was born, I believe, in 1880 and emigrated around 1901. I would also be very interested in the Romano history. Should I start a different thread for that? I'm new - not sure the protocol!

Paolo's wife was Anna Puco. She came from, I believe, the Cesa area also. She emigrated with her mother, Rosifina Perfetto Puco around 1894 when she was about 5 years old. Anna's father, Frank Puco (Francesca?) had emigrated to America several year earlier and they were joining him. This is information from family - I'm trying to verify and find what information I can. My husband is interested in the types of work they did and the conditions they may have been under when the decision was made to come to America.

Thanks again!

Well, sometimes we just get lucky, and I think I hit the jackpot with your husband's ancestors!!!

Here is birth record for Paolo Romano, born in Cesa 2 June 1880
Father: Tommaso Romano, 37, peasant farmer
Mother: Francesca Oliva (notation on record rectifies the mother's name as Maria Francesca Oliva), his wife, peasant farmer
Child was born at 5 AM on 2 June, and presented at the town hall on 3 June.

These records made it easier to see the mother's maiden name.

I take it you are fluent in Italian? This is very helpful as I have been trying to figure out translations. This is so interesting - I don't want to do my other work!
Thank you again!
