Guarriello/Materazzo's in Avellino

Postby ehissim » 07 May 2012, 18:14

My grandfather's parents: Anthony Guariello and Ester Materazzo's parents originally come from Avellino, IT and that's about all I know. For years I've been trying to track down the names of Anthony's parents and Ester's grandparents without any luck. Next month I'll be travelling to Italy and I'm hoping to finally have a breakthrough. How would I go about finding records about my family - should I go to Avellino directly or go to Naples which was their port of departure when they immigrated? Who should I contact or what offices should I go to? Any advice you could give would be greatly appreciated!!!

Do you know what town in Avellino? Some people said they were from Avellino but born in one of the smaller towns in the area.

When you go, just to be on the safe side, if your surname is not the same as your great-grandparents, bring any records you have to prove you are the great-granddaughter of these people.

mother Concetta in Avellino,joining at brother Nicola in Paterson, Passaic, NJ.
Nicola Guarriello, Anthony's brother, was born in Valle Ponticelli hamlet of Avellino town on 29 March 1905( data by naturalization) and immigrated on 29th sep 1920

It appears the town is Valle Ponticelli :-)
