Vozzo Family in Italy

Postby kimciriello » 24 Mar 2011, 14:32

I'm looking for the parents of Maria Vozzo. She married Antonio Buonocore in Italy June 16 1912. She immigrated to the US in 1916.

Maria left behind her father (Domenico?) - column 11 on the first sheet above.

This is the place of birth for both Maria and Gioacchino; I haven't figured it out yet...

I suppose they both say "Amalfi"...

Comune di Amalfi, Provincia di Salerno, Regione di Campania, Southern Italy

Does anyone concur?

There is only the one (this is typical) listed, and I am quite certain it says, "father Domenico" and on the second line, "Amalfi". Meaning that her nearest relative still in Italy was her father, Domenico Vozzo, and he resided in Amalfi.

Given the information you already have:

Maria Vozzo, born 1894 in Amalfi; father Domenico Vozzo
Married to Antonio Buonocore 1912 in Amalfi
Child Gioacchino born 1913 in Amalfi

you can write to Amalfi and request Maria's birth and marriage acts.

I was looking for information on Rachel Buonocore. Here is what I have:
born about 1860- Italy
married about 1880
came to US in 1899
lived with son Raffaele in CT in 1910

Any additional information would be helpful.
