Visiting Roccapipirozzi

Postby RobertoG » 15 May 2011, 16:59

My wife and I are planning a visit to Italy this July. I am especially interested in visiting a small village called Roccapipirozzi. This village was the birthplace of my maternal grandfather, Giacomo Melone in 1886. His father was Carmine Melone and his mother was Anna Bruno. As we have very little information about my mother's family I would like to get started on some research to locate any relatives or the home in which my grandfather was born.

Can you suggest any websites, or municipal records centers that would be able to get me started? Thank you.

Giacomo Melone lived in Kearny, New Jersey. His wife's name was Cecilia Pucci Mariano. She was born in the United States in 1890; she passed away in 1944. Her family on her mother's side I believe was from the north near Venezia or Padua.

Was Giacomo's American name, James?

I hope you had a wonderful trip to Italy.
