Surname Casparino

Postby sahartung » 22 Aug 2014, 21:36

I am looking for any information on the surname Casparino. My grandfather William was born in the states (Bloomfield, New Jersey) March 8, 1896. I am looking for more information about his father my great grandfather. His name was Alessio Casparino (not sure of the spelling of first name) and he was born in Italy in March of 1859. His wife's name was Maria A., I do not have a last name for her, born in January of 1860. They had 5 children here in the US. (Rosa, Catherine, William, Theresa, and Mary. I do not have an area where they were from. I know there are only two places in Italy with that name association. Any help is much appreciated. Sharon

Sorry for not replying sooner as there was a problem with my account. I just want to thank you all for the information. You are so awesome. I do believe this is my family as most of the infomation matches with what I have. I will be contacting my aunt to see if her father William ever used the name Vito. I was able to find a census record that includes both my Aunt Marie and her sister Adele with his name listed as Vito. The last name was very interesting to know as well and were they all lived. I know Alesio had a brother Guiseppe which I am trying to match with the family data but so far I haven't been able to sift through all the same name matches. If you happen to find any more records from Italy it would be very much appreciated. Thank you again for all you do! Sharon

Hi Tessa,

In the 1900 census Guiseppe appears as being born in Jan 1875 and was married then also. Thank you for the info on the earlier siblings. I hope we can find Guiseppe so I can truly know this is the right family. I wish I knew how to research better. I am so grateful for your help. Sharon
