Robucci family in new York?

Postby tviatte » 17 May 2006, 03:46

I have an Italian collegue whose name is Robucci; a part of her family migrated toward United States many decades ago. The last news she got was that her father's uncle Giuseppe Robucci died in New York City around 1960. She also knows that Giuseppe had 2 children. Could someone help my collegue in her search?

Hi There,

There aren't that many Robucci's on ancestry so chances are that your collegue should be able to recognize whether they are related to her or not.

For Joseph I found this. Could it be her Giuseppe? Connecticut is close to New York.

First of all, many thanks to all those who spent time and efforts for finding about the Robuccis. We are amazed how you people are ready to help the community. My collegue (her name is Concetta Robucci) has been very happy and excited to get these pieces of information about her family.

About Giuseppe Robucci, she gave me 3 additionnal hints which might be helpful:

1) Giuseppe's father was named Antonio (he is Cancetta's great-grand father)
2) Giuseppe's son was also named Antonio, after is grand father; he is probably still living in the USA
3) the family originally comes from Bisaccia (near Napoli)

That's all we know about it at the moment
Thank you all for your kind assistance.

Just to throw in a monkey wrench.......here is a Joseph Robucci, age 36 single, living in Woodbury, Orange, NY in 1920. Born Italy, single, immigrated 1903 & naturallized 1911.

I think we need more information. About when was Giuseppe Robucci born? Name of wife? Children's names?
Researching in San Vitaliano, Napoli, Italy & Armento, Potenza, Italy.

Thanks to the good work from all of you, we can now tell that Giuseppe Robucci who travelled from Naples to New York with the SS Canada, and arrived on May 16, 1913 might very well be Concetta's grand-uncle. All information matches so far.

Concetta now got additional data from her Italian family:
1) Giuseppe got married in the USA, his wife's first name was Grazia
2) they had 3 children: Eda-Grazia, Filomena, and Antonio.

This totally matches with information from Robuccis in Hartford Connecticut, reported above by Nuccia, concerning:
Grace Robucci (married Joseph, died 1997),
Eda Carey (born Robucci, died 1996),
Anthony Robucci (died 1983),
(nothing about Filomena).

So if anyone knows about Filomena, or about possible alive children from these people, this might help us for making a contact.


Grazie mille.
