Ah, but it appears that you have a Family Tree setup on Ancestry . com (member name "cernst8053") for this individual already. What additional information are you seeking?

I'm trying to find parents, grandparents, etc. THat is the elusive information. I found out recently that the Cafaro surname is really concentrated in Salerno in a town called Caggiano.

Actually, the Cafaro surname is widespread throughout Italy. See http://www.gens.labo.net/en/cognomi/genera.html?cognome=CAFARO



Assuming that the manifest I previously posted is the correct one, then Pasquale's last residence was at Comune di Nocera Superiore, Provincia di Salerno, Regione di Campania. It is as likely as not that this was also his place of birth.

One option would be to simply write the comune and request Pasquale's birth certificate. The address would be:

Ufficio dello Stato Civile
Comune di Nocera Superiore
Via Matteotti, 15
84015 Nocera Superiore SA
ITALY

web: http://nocerasuperiore.asmenet.it/

You can use a letter like this one, or search the forum for other examples:

13 giugno 2011 [giugno is June; month names in italian are written lower case]

[your name]
[your address]

STATI UNITI D'AMERICA - USA


Ufficio dello Stato Civile
Comune di Rezzato
Piazza Vantini 21
25086 Rezzato BS
ITALY

Egregi Signori,

Mi chiamo [your name here], ed abito negli Stati Uniti all'indirizzo sopradetto.

Vi scrivo affinché mi aiutiate a reperire:

* Copia integrale dell'atto di Nascita

per il mio [your relationship to the person - see below]:

* CAFARO PASQUALE nato nel Comune di Nocera Superiore, in data [date of birth or 'circa 1884' for example], paternità [his father's given name if you know it else 'incerto'], maternità [mother's full maiden name if you know it "SMITH JANE" else 'incerto']

Vi prego di farmi sapere quanto dovuto per il servizio e per i costi di spedizione.

Distinti saluti,

[your signature]




Birth/marriage/death photocopies of original registry pages are called: Copia integrale dell'atto di Nascita/Matrimonio/Morte. These are more difficult to read but contain lots of additional useful information compared to...

Birth/marriage/death computer-generated (sometimes hand-written) extracts are: Estratto Per Riassunto Per Atto Di Nascita/Matrimonio/Morte

Most comuni do not charge for these documents. Do send a large, self-addressed (but not stamped) envelope if possible; be sure to put "STATI UNITI D'AMERICA - USA" in the final line of your address. It is also a good idea to include a copy of your ID (driver's license, for example) as some comuni want to see some form of ID.

Relationships:

Father: padre
Mother: madre
Son: figlio
Daughter: figlia
Grandson: nipote
Granddaughter: nipote
Sister: sorella
Brother: fratello
Uncle: zio
Aunt: zia

Do you have an address for the Caggiano commune too? I figure I'll give both a shot....
