Giglio Family in Brazil

Postby wgiglio » 09 Jul 2015, 15:03

Hello everyone,

I'm investigating my italian roots and got up to Francesco Giglio, married with Maria Thereza Cavalieri. I still have no dates on them.

Their children immigrated to Brazil, and among them was my great grandfather, Luigi Giglio, b. 15 Jul 1898, married with Philomena Cascardo.

His siblings are:
Assunta Giglio, b. 27 Apr 1910 Italy, d. 28 May 1987 Brazil
Elvira Giglio,
Simião Giglio,
Agostino Giglio,
Miguel Giglio,
Joephina Giglio and
Carlos Giglio

This pretty much all the info I have on my earliest ancestors. I'm at a brickwall and would gladly accept any insights, suggestions or hints.

Regards

I would guess that they were Francesco Giglio and Maria Teresa Cavaliere from Campania (for example, Napoli), but there really are a lot of possible places.

Oh my god! I think that's them! I swear I have somewhere in my notes that says Napoli.

How did you do that? What other info do you have? This is so amazing!

Thank you so much for all the help so far.

adelfio, I believe your first post got the wrong people. Luigi was maried to Filomena Cascardo. Although it was very close.

However, you nailed the second one. All the dates match. I think this is definately his birth record. How did you find it? You just typed Luigi Giglio on the Family Search website? Because I have done that I got very little results.

I also searched for evryone with the Giglio surname on the immigration card record and found 2 siblings of Luigi!
Agostino Giglio: https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:KC65-429
Evlira Giglio: https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FFT8-9TK
and even her son, Michelangelo Colonese: https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FFT8-QWV

But yeah, I think we nailed where they are from, Fuscaldo.
