Looking for information on my paternal grandparents Giovanni Masiello and Angelena Angelecchia

Postby bellad210 » 11 Jul 2015, 22:34

All I know of them is that they were supposed to have come from Bari, but I don't know what village. And I'm not certain of the spelling of my grandmother's surname. Any info would be appreciated. I believe that at least 3 of their 5 sons were born in Italy, but my father was born in America.

Welcome to the forum! :-)

Masiello surname is found throughout Bari province, but Angelecchia is not found. The spelling ANGILECCHIA is found in Bari, mostly in Cassano delle Murge, where the largest population of Masiello exists today. :-)

Can you provide first name of your father, an approx. date of birth and where the family lived in US?

When did your grandparents immigrate?

We try to work from US records to try and find place of birth in Italy.

Yes Marty! We are a great team... :-)

Always love putting the history together with you!

Have only found ONE Nicola Angilecchia born between 1828 and 1833.... and he was the son of Domenico, not Francesco Paolo :-)

****EDIT TO ADD*****\

Found the marriage of Nicola Angilecchia and Anna Vitti in 1859...AND... Nicola's father's name is Domenico, not Francesco Paolo (looks like the clerk wrote it incorrectly above on Angela's birth record...)

Here is the marriage of Nicola Angilecchia and Anna Vitti/Villi (looks like Villi) in 1859
Dated 20 October 1859 in Cassano
Groom: Nicola Angilecchia, 24, peasant farmer son of Domenico Angilecchia and Maria Costanza Luce
Bride: Anna Villi, 22, daughter of Tommaso Villi, shoemaker, and of Isabella Russo.

Lucia's mother's surname is D'Urso :-)

And Angela Santa's mother is definitely Vitti :-)

Well, Marty :-) , we have certainly gone a LONG way back for the poster...
Hope the poster returns ! :-)
