Priore Family History Help

Postby mmet67 » 05 Mar 2014, 06:04

I am trying to find out anything I can about my grandmother's side of the family. This is what I have:

Name: Filomena Maria Priore
Born: 19 Nov 1892 in Navelli, L'Aquila, Abruzzo, Italy
Immigrated to the US: 1912
Got Married in West Virginia, USA
Father: Salvatore
Mother: Francesca Santirocco
Siblings: Angelina, Gemma, Giovannia, and Agapito.

I have searched every place I can think of to try to find records and cannot find anything.

I have all the info on her after she came to the US. I just can't find anything on her or her family from Italy.

After looking at the birth record of Agapito Priore that Paolo 47 left it says Salvatore Priore resided in Civitaretenga a municipality of Navelli at the time of the birth. I checked the birth records 1865-1861 of both Civitaretenga and Navelli and the only Salvatore Priore in that time frame was this:
POSSIBLE Birth record of Salvatore Priore
INDEX#4
1864 Feb 6th in the town of Civitaretenga birth of Salvatore Priore son of Giovanni Priore age 33 farmhand and Almenida Napoleone age 25 cotton spinner
Side note says Salvatore Priore married Francesca Anna Lazzano 1887 Sept 18th in Navelli wonder if she died and he remarried Francesca Santirocco was his second wife

Oh, that could very well be him. I have his birth date as 1865. My brother was giving me information that he was told by my grandmother before she passed. He could have remarried. I just can't find anything on my great grandmother, Francesca, either. Thank you so much for finding this. This gives me some information I can use to research. I don't know where to look for records. I don't speak Italian (I can make out some words) and it is very hard for me to research. Thank you again.

Now that I look at my notes, I think it IS him. I have his father down as John (I know the Italian name for John is Giovanni) and I have his mother as Alamarina (which could have been mistaken for Almenida). Still confused, though, about him being married to Francesca Anna Lazzano. I know my grandmother's mother's name was Francesca Santirocco (I have Sarrocca... but that could have been misinterpreted... she couldn't speak English very well).

I believe Marty has a good birth record for your Salvatore and I think you are right about the surname, Sarrocca.
Here is the marriage record for Salvatore and Francesca in Sept, 1887

You guys are AWESOME! Thank you so very much! This has given me so much information. It is especially hard for me to find records due to the fact that I don't speak or read Italian. I can not express enough how grateful I am.
