Looking for Raphella D'Onofrio in Caserta (living)

Postby Sammie » 20 Feb 2006, 08:14

Hell everyone...new to this site...so glad i have found it :D

My mother is getting old she is 84..and I want to find her cousin's daughter.
From what I understand her name is Raphellia (spelling...sorry :? ) D'Onofrio she married Piero or Petro, last name i don't know.

My grandfather was from Caserta Baia E latina and so was she. I do not have any addresses or phone numbers, but I do know that she is there somewhere.
I am also interested in the Gianfrancesco name (grandfather) She Raphellia is also related to Gianfrancesco.
I understand that looking for ancestors can be a very long process and i might not find her for years....would anyone one know another way to find a living relitive in Naples Caserta?? I am up for any suggestions...

I am in Montreal Canada and will be more that willing to help anyone who is in need of finding anyone here..

Thank you so much for your time...

Hi Sammie,

The Italian White Pages...

Where it says "Cognome" just put in a surname of interest....

http://www.paginebianche.it/index.html

Hope this helps some...

Hi Sammie,

mfpj I hope you don't mind me making a comment on this thread?

It's just that I noticed that Sammie said that:

" Raphellia (spelling...sorry :? ) D'Onofrio she married Piero or Petro, last name i don't know. "

Of course married ladies like Rafaella (?) in Italy do retain their own (maiden) surnames for all legal purposes - however the telephones in thier homes are usually listed in the name of their husband. Of course this does not mean that there may not be a few exceptions to this - but it will be rare.
So if Sammie does a search in the Pagine Bianche (White Pages), she may not find any listing in her search under the lady's maiden name. The key will probably be in the husbands surname.

Just tell me to 'go away' if you feel I have interfered unnecessarily here!

I just gave her the Italian white pages... just so she could look up (as an example) D'Onofrio people in Italy in Caserta... or any other person she felt like... since she didn't have a source for phone numbers and addresses...


Sorry Sammie... maybe I should have explained myself better... as to why I linked the White Pages...

If someone reads your post... and offers you a surname... you can use the White Pages "Pagine Bianche" that I linked for you... to look people up...

Hi Sammie, you can write a letter to D'Onofrio in Baia e Latina and you must explane that you are a parent of D'ONOFRIO Raffaella married to Pietro... and that you don't know the husband surname.. that Raffaella perhaps still living ... this is the only chance for the success and to hope that someone reply you... also you can send a email to Antonio Landolfi in Baia e Latina that it have this website
http://web.tiscali.it/alandolfi/ ( landolfiantonio @ tiscali.it the email) and you can ask the help.. and you send also the picture so he can see.... I think that he know the english language and I hope that he will reply you....
regards, suanj

Sammie, the years don't make too much sense but here is what I have.
Pietro D'Onofrio di Resta From Sessa Aurunca, Caserta married Raffaela Di Paolo in 1888. From 1890 to 1895 they lived in Patterson, NJ and Richmond, VA. In 1897 they moved to Peru and Pietro became rich making Ice Cream (the D'Onofrio brand is very popular there).
My grandfather, Pietro D'Onofrio Mazzeo was Pietro D'Onofrio di Resta's nephew. Most of their descedands live in Peru.

Hope it helps

Hi,

My family is also from Baia e Latina, I have been there many times and know lots of people there very well including relatives and good friends. The nice lady that looks after the birth, death and marriage records there (Angela Maria Schettino) is a good friend of mine. Anyway, if you haven't already gotten answers to your original questions, I'm sure I could help you. Feel free to contact me directly at rdimuccio2001@yahoo.com.

Otherwise, buona fortuna!
