Hello! I'm looking for information on the Passero family that is from Amorosi, Benevento (near Naples). I am the great grandson of Armando Passero and the grandson of Patsy Passero. Armando came to New York in 1906. I would really like to know the names and birth dates of Armando's parents if anyone has that information. Thanks!

Hi!! I'm also a great-grandchild of Armondo Passero my grandmother is his daughter Louise (Luisa). She is still alive, And lives in Orange County, CA and is 92 years old . My father , David Snyder is her youngest son. Antionette Passero was a big part of my childhood, but passed away in 1978 when I was 10 years old. I have many photos of them and a few home movies
I am the great-grandaughter of Alfredo Passero, born in 1888 from Amorosi, Benevento Italy (possibly arrived in NY in 1905). I am nearly certain that he is a brother of Armando (of Niagara Falls), however Alfredo lived in Syracuse, Ithaca, and then Rochester, NY. According to my mother's records, there was a brother Ernesto who went to Ethiopia but then returned to Italy. And a younger brother born after Alfredo and Armando were in NY is Michael. His daughter ended up with the family house in Italy. Unfortunately this is all I know and it would be great to learn more about the family.
Ernesto Passero military info is on line only the index but you could email for his record and his parents would be on military record and other info.

I am a granddaughter of Alfredo Passero, who was the brother of Armando Passero. We have been trying to get more family information. We visited the Niagara Falls family back when I was a child a few times. I have info about the family home in Italy as well as some of the relatives there.
I have a young friend in Addis Abeba (Ethiopia), whose surname is Passero, who would be very interested in knowing the relationship between the Passero family in Amorosi and its Ethiopian branch. Was Ernesto Passero the first one to migrate to Ethiopia? When? Was he the father of Pasquale Passero, the grandfather of my friend? Thank you for your help in gathering this information. BeppeS
I'm the great grandchild of Ernesto Passero, once in Ethiopia he had Pasquale Passero my grandfather Father of Luciano Passero my father. Would love to know more about the Passero family from Amorosi Benevento
