Vosa & Caputo from Naples

Postby sunseventh » 06 Jul 2011, 14:24

I'm looking for information on the families of my great grandparents Matilde Vosa b. 1868 & Alberto Caputo b. 1868 from Naples. They married about 1899, I assume in Naples, but do not know what specific area they were from. All three of their children, Elvira, Mario and Bianca/Blanche were born in Naples, arriving in New York City in 1909.

Matilde Vosa's parents are Francesco Vosa and Guiseppina Vaccaro. She also has a sister named Adelina m. Vincenzo Badolati and a brother Eduardo. To date, I do not know of other possible siblings. Guiseppina Vaccaro was born about 1845 and I have found her in a ship manifest traveling to the U.S. with daughter Adelina.

I don't know Alberto Caputo's parents names, nor do I know of any siblings. He was involved in the Italian American Theatre in New York City.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have Caputo's in my family that were from Colliano, Salerno, but not
enough information about them to say where they were originally from.

Paul,

Thank you so much for checking, I really appreciate your time and effort.

I do have access to ancestry.com, so I think I have most of what is there. I also have a few marriage and death certificates, but to date, nothing has provided any "smoking guns" to get me to search in the right areas in Italy.

BTW, you have a very nice family website.

Lee

Thank you Lee for the nice words about my web site. Many hours of research has helped me find several cousins living in the U.S.

Something you could try in your search and you might get lucky. Email the comune of Naples,
http://en.comuni-italiani.it/063/049/index.html and ask them to search for the birth act for Alberto.
Here is a nice web site to use for constructing a letter,

Hope this helps,
