Surname; Alvino & Fuccella / Fuccello

Postby TalesOfaLibrarian » 20 Jun 2014, 05:41

Hi!

I'm looking for information on the Alvino family in Italy and/or ways to go about researching Italian records without knowing much Italian.

Bella, Potenza has come up in most recent findings for family origin but I can't be sure if that's accurate. Family stories mention an Italian island the family lived or relatives of the family lived, but I don't recall if I ever got the name. Campania seems to be very popular as well online for Alvino, but I have found no connects yet..

The information I have is as follows:

My great great grandfather Dominick Alvino and his wife Angelina (maiden name unknown) were born in Italy. They had a son named Michael Alvino born in Italy 1877, died 4th July 1919 in Hasbrouck Heights, Bergen, New Jersey due to an auto accident. Newspaper article says he was living in Lodi, New Jersey at the time. Michael's wife was named Filomena (Philomena), maiden name Fuccella (Fucella or Fucello)- every place I find has a different spelling. She was born in Italy 15 March 1878, some information have said 1880 but the majority say 1878. She immigrated to New York in 1910. Died 7th Jan 1970 in Yonkers, Westchester, New York. Filomena was not a naturalized citizen until 1945 if I remember correctly.. I need to pull out the information. Weather Dominick and Angelina had more children besides Michael, I don't know.

Michael and Filomena had two children born in Italy; Dominick Alvino (b. 1898) and Lena Alvino (b. 1908). In the US, Filomena and Michael had six more children; four girls and twin boys between 1910-1917; Mary (b. 1910 d. 2004), Lucy (b. 1911), Rachael (b. 1913), Vitina (b. 1916), Peter and Anthony (b. 1917). Anthony died in 1998. A nephew named James Haroni or Faroni? (b. abt 1892) in Italy, immigrated in 1904, lived with them in New York. -What side of the family he is related to I don't know. Is it normal for a child around 10 year old to immigrant on his own back then? I have not found a passenger list with him yet.

When Michael died, his eldest son Dominick (b. 1898), supported the family and did so, well into his 30s from the information I have on him. He was a Chief Clerk at a Banking Concern in the Washington Heights NYC area.. 1940s census states he was working 44 hours a week, all 52 weeks in 1939. Their apartment is near what is now a Puerto Rican restaurant called La Potencia. Dominick was also listed as a naturalized citizen and widowed in 1940 but his wife's name is unknown. His sister Mary (b. 1910) went to college (in her second year in 1940) and had a family later on but I don't know any other information about them at this time. The twins, Peter and Anthony, were musicians. Anthony later on went into the military. I am a descendant of Anthony's and just this last year found Peter's descendants. They did not even know Anthony had a family and vise versa.. despite both sides living in the same city for generations, having child the same time- generation after generation- even working in the same career fields, etc. New nothing of each other! So weird. I have been in contact with someone who married into the family but they have limited information themselves.. though informed me, due to conflict said to originate from Filomena's side- the family broke and stopped speaking. Which is assisting in my current difficulties in finding information about them.

The one other story I have is.. my great grandmother- who I'm assuming they are referring to Filomena.. grew up in a village of many vineyards, squashing grapes so much in her youth her feet were stained by it.

I would love to know anything about anyone listed above or related to.. but especially where I come from in Italy.. if anyone can point me in the right direction. Would really appreciate any help. THANK YOU!

Sincerely,
Tales of a Librarian
