Ancestry research - "Parotto" surname - Potenza province

Postby BParotto » 27 Sep 2012, 18:58

I am looking for information on my great great grandparents, whose surname is currently Parotto. The name may have changed when they immigrated to America, I have seen variations such as Perrotto, Perotto, Parrotta, Parotta, Parato, Parrato, etc.. My great great grandfather Rocco was born around 1861 in Potenza province, potentially in Calvello. My great great grandmother Maria Fratanduona/Fredona/Fratano/Tratonduorn (unsure which is her correct maiden name) was born between 1865 & 1872 in Potenza province, potentially in Calvello. They were married around 1880 and immigrated to America shortly after. I have been unable to find their immigration records, or anything from Italy so far, so I was hoping someone might be able to help me. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Thanks so much for the fast reply! In talking with some of my relatives, Maria would have been about 5 years younger than Rocco. It was an arranged marriage. Perhaps the wedding was not in Calvello, but somewhere else in Potenza province? Maybe 1 of them was from Calvello but the other was not. I will try to ask for any more information from my relatives as well.

I spoke with some relatives and found new information - my great great grandmother's name looks to have been Maria Antonio Fratianton or Frantianton. (born in 1869?) Her parents were John Fratianton/Frantianton and Theresa Gambilio. They were from the town of Calvello. Any help anyone could give me on finding information on her, her parents, or her marriage to Rocco in the 1880's would be greatly appreciated.

Could your GGGM's surname have been Pietrantuono? This name exists in Calvello...

What reference do you have for her maiden name?

Hello, it's possible that could be her maiden name. Unfortunately my only source is a handwritten note from a relative who at one time was looking into this. The only actual records I have are from the U.S. after she was married. Do you show a Maria Pietrantuono being married to a Rocco Parotto? (or similar spelling)

Hello, I believe the tree you're referring to either belongs to me or my aunt, as we both posted a tree with information from the same hard copy tree that a relative had done several years ago. I'm still missing any actual records to confirm anything prior to their arrival in the U.S. Thank you for looking into this!

The 1900 & 1910 census may have some clues that could help in the search
Valarie

In 1900 Mary is remarried to John Worrell (from their 1910 census, both had been married before)
Angeline, Theresa, Louis, John and Rocco are 1st husband Rocco Parotto's children
According to the 1900 census daughters Angeline and Theresa Parotto may have been born in Italy? Both Angeline (Scattone) and Theresa (Durand) census records after 1910 indicate they were born in IL
