Iovine Luongo Grossi

Postby b738pilot » 09 Aug 2016, 22:47

Ciao

I successfully traced back all of my relatives to the old country, but now I'd like to expand my search in Italy. I'm running into difficulty since it seems most of my ancestors came from villages and the comune's don't usually respond, even to emails in Italian.

I'm hoping there's others out there that I could connect with that have similar interests to the last names of Iovine, Luongo, and Grossi. I'm a direct decendent of a Giacomo Iovine born somewhere in Avellino, Italy but his wife, Orsola Luongo was born in Tufo. So any Iovine's from Tufo I'd be interested in.

I saw another forum post of the Iovine name from Tufo, I see Tufo is a small village, is it possible that any Iovine born in Tufo could be related?

Grazie

Can you provide some approx. dates of birth and marriage?

There are currently 2 listings for LUONGO in the Italian Phone book in Tufo.
http://www.paginebianche.it/page?btt=1& ... =Tufo&ind=

AND... while there are no current listings for IOVINE in Tufo, there are 16 in the surrounding area (mostly in Lapio)

Thanks a lot! I never thought about looking at a phone book! Very nice.

Yes, my 2nd great-grandmother Orsola Luongo was born 1966 and her husband (mio trisnonno) Giacomo Iovine was born 1849.

Civil registrations (births, deaths, marriages) are available to rent and view at your nearest Family History Center from the LDS.
They hold microfilm of Tufo records from 1809-1899

Yes, I saw that, I was going to place an order this week for the Tufo records. I never used microfilm before, can't wait to see how difficult it will be to read the old Italian handwriting :)

You only need to search for familiar names if the handwriting becomes difficult.
At the center there usually is the ability to save the image(s) on a flash drive.
After that, you can return to this forum and post your image for translation if needed. :-)

So i browsed the Tufo microfilm. I found my 2nd great grandfather, but having a hard time reading the handwriting. I'm trying to find out more info on his parents to keep tracing them, does it give the birth years or any info worth knowing for hints for his parents? Thanks

Wow! That's incredible! How you can read that is beyond me :) you're good

One thing though, on Giacomo's death certificate, Antonia's last name is listed as Grossi. Is the writing "Rosso" definitely Rosso or can it be written Grossi? That will prove interesting!

Did you know Giacomo Iovine had 2 wifes?

I knew he had two wives so that makes sense, I just don't know what happened to his first wife if they divorced or if she died and if they had any kids. I have to make a trip to Tufo one of these days. Is it safe to say that any "Iovine" that I find from Tufo chances are I'm related to them ? Because I've seen some "Iovine" records through the microfilm
