DeLuca, Guiseppe, Benevento, Italy

Postby dinpluto » 19 Jun 2011, 05:53

Looking for information on my grandfathers family. Father was Carmen, mother Elizabetta. They lived in Benevento, Italy. Guiseppe (Grandpa Joe) was born in Jauary 19, 1895. Had siblings Giovanni, Antonio (?) and 2 or 3 sisters. He came to the U.S. and had ties to Ohio and Pennsylvania, but ended up in Hoboken, NJ where he married Maggie Guglielmelli. They had a daughter Elizabeth, my mom. Grandpa Joe eventually returned to Benevento, Italy where he died in May, 1973. Any information would be appreciated.

Now for to find the living relatives it is a problem, because De Luca is a popular surname in Benevento as a well in all Italy;
in Benevento currently are 177 families De Luca:

so it is a problem to find the living relatives....
