Bagarozza/Piserchia Family (Italy to Newark, NJ)

Postby Carolynbateman » 18 Apr 2012, 17:53

Hi! I'm researching Joseph Anthony Bagarozza's family and have hit a road block. Any help would be very much appreciated. This is what I have...

Joseph Anthony Bagarozza Sr (1926-1995) married to Rose Marie Potenzone (1926-1990). They had children: Nancy, Joseph Jr., Salvatore, Michael, and Patrick. Actually two Patricks, the first died as a newborn. They lived on Garside Street in Newark, NJ. Joseph had siblings: Maria, Josephine (1921?), Pasquale (1923-1996), and Mafilda (1929?).

Joseph Sr.'s parents were Salvatore "Solly" Bagarozza (1898-1969) and Filomena Piserchia (1897?) from Sicily, Italy.
Salvatore had a brother Vincenzo Bagarozza (1889?)... not known if there were others. I do not know who Salvatore's parents were.

Filomena Piscerchia had two brothers that lived with the Bagarozza family for a period of time on Garside Street in Newark - they were Michael (1904?) and Frank (1909?). I do not know who Filomena's parents were.

Any help regarding this family would be greatly appreciated!!!
Thanks!
Carolyn

Thank you, suanj.
That is the right family indeed.
I had come across a Boston Francesco but could not prove the connection.

I'm very new at this but have been able to find a lot more information than I thought I would but became frustrated when I got stuck. This is my boyfriend's family and I'm doing this for him and his children.

Any idea how I can find Salvatore and Filomena's parents?
Thanks again.
Carolyn

If you know the birthdate of Salvatore and Filomena, you can write in Castelnuovo di Conza civil records office asking the birth certificates.. and you can know the parent's names:


Ufficio Servizi Demografici
Municipio di Castelnuovo di Conza
Via Federico Di Donato
84020 Castelnuovo di Conza (SA)
Italy

email: demog.castelnuovo @ tiscali.it (NO SPACES PLEASE)
