Searching for Capodanno family in Gaeta or Naples

Postby 49_nhelmick » 28 Mar 2015, 23:29

I am looking for birth information for my great grandparents. Erasmo Capodanno was born in 1854. So far as I know, his family was from Gaeta, but later lived in Naples. His father was Pietro Paolo Capodanno, his mother Rosaria Magliocca. In 1886 he married Francesca Caruso (b.1866) and they resettled in Boston, Massachusetts, in 1893 (although I believe he may have arrived alone in 1892 with his wife and children following in 1893). I am most specifically interested in the birth record for my grandmother, Rosa Capodanno, born in Naples on Jan 26, 1891. However, I would also like to find a marriage record for Erasmo Capodanno and Francesca Caruso in 1886, or a birth record for Francesca Caruso in 1866.

Any help would be most appreciated.

There's no online records for the city of Naples and microfilmed records for Naples only go up to 1865 so for all these post-1865 records, you'd have to contact the town and request them. Someone else might be able to help you with a letter in Italian asking for what you need.

But Erasmo and his wife were born before 1865 so their birth records might be easier to get a hold of. If they were born in Gaeta, you can order the records on microfilm here: https://familysearch.org/search/catalog ... %20Library

If they were born in Naples: https://familysearch.org/search/catalog ... %20Library
