Sgambati's from Avella

Postby JSgambati » 27 Mar 2015, 21:33

I am looking to research the Sgambati Family from Avella. I am trying to obtain names/dates for individuals who did not come to America. I know Liberato Sgambati married Angelina DeFazio and they had children and lived in Avella. One of the sons, Silverio Sgambati, was a Franciscan Priest in the Monastery in Avella. I am also trying to find out how to contact the monastery to get information on him.

Thank you so much for your reply. Liberato Sgambati and Angelina DeFazio Sgambati were born about 1860-1862. They had children who were born in Avella/Avellino between the late 1870's and 1880's. I do not know if I have a complete listing of all the children. I could provide what information I have if it would be helpful.
