Cunto Family From Napoli

Postby mangelini » 21 Apr 2012, 09:12

Hi, I have come to a dead end in my research. I am after the birth of my Ancestor Gennaro Cunto born about 1793 in Napoli, of which i am unsure where. His parents were Nicola Cunto and Nicoletta Chiammiello according to his marriage record. He moved to Lipari in the 1830's and stayed there with is new Wife and Decedants. He seems to be the only Cunto to move to Lipari.

If anyone knows where the cunto family could be based or has other information i woudl be glad to hear.

Note. the death record states his Father as Gaetano Cunto??

He married Marianna Barresi in Lipari in 1835. So he moved to Lipari around this time.

Thank you so much Sunj. I do actually have this record. I have found the Atto di Morte di Marianna Barresi. I had not thought that the surname could be Bongi, but Baressi is a common name in Lipari, and I have found a death record of Marianna's brother with the same parents of course and it states Girolamo Barresi as the father. Thanks anyway for your help it is much appreciated.

Hi Mangelini and Suani,
in this act (http://www.antenati.san.beniculturali.i ... 7.jpg.html) it's write BARRESI and not BONGI. read carefully!
For other information about GENNARO CUNTO ad his wife, you can try to contact the diocesan archives of Messina and ask them about the "processetto matrimoniale" of the year august, 21, 1835 (the cathedral of Lipari).
The "processetto" can give you information about the Napoli's church where Gennaro was baptized, and other information.
