Postby antonio43 » 10 Mar 2007, 16:56

write you because, I've 2 questions:
- What does the family name "BOCHICCHIO" mean ? My family come from South Italy.

-I'm also looking for informations about a woman, who may be from my family :
M.A. Lapelosa Widow / Widower, Grass Widow
Age 49
Sex F
Literacy U
Arrived 16 May 1888
Origin Italy
Port Naples & Palermo
Last Residence U
Destination New York

Passage Unknown,

I wanted to know if we can see if this wife is still in life, in the census of 1890 or 1900, or elsewhere.

Thanks.
Regards.

the Bochicchio surname coming from a ancient albanian family : the Bosichio, and when they emigrated in Italy, especially in Basilicata region, in the area between Potenza town and Avignano town, they have italianized the surname in Bochicchio....
