Do you want any information on the surname Carafelli or information that relates to your family. If you are looking for informaiton on your family you need to post more details and some specific research goals for anyone to be able to help you.

Example:
Have you found your family on the US census?
Have you found passenger records for their arrival to the US?

We need names, ages, chldren and places they lived to be able to help you.

If you put your surname into this link below you will get 14 Carafelli's. Perhaps one will be of interest to you.

I am interested in the both the meaning and roots of the name and family "Carafelli". I do already have an extensive family tree, but no town of origin for my family.

Thanks,

Most of the Carafelli emigrants came from Campoli Appennino, a commune in Frosinone, Lazio. Most Carafelli families today live nearby in Rome.

You could probably get more specific help if you posted a bit (names, dates, etc) about the original ancestors in your tree.

As for meaning, I don't find "Carafelli" in any of my references but I'd bet on a diminutive of ""Caraffa", or bottle (i.e. "little bottle").
