Riccio-Verosino

Postby prawson » 29 Apr 2007, 01:06

My grandparents were born in Ariano di Puglia (as far as I know). My grandfather was Francesco Riccio, born 1892. He had an older brother, Ottone, father was Michael, and mother Anna. He came to the US in 1910 and again in 1920.

He married Elvira Verosino, born about 1900. My mother and uncles say that she always told them that she was the illegitimate daughter of Don Pedro and a servant girl and was adopted by the Verosino family. I have no information about her heritage, nor do I know anything about Don Pedro or the Verosino's.

Any information about Ariano di Puglia of members of this family would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Valarie,

Yes, I had the manifest information, but not the naturalization. I have not tried to find the naturalization paperwork. I see you gave me a link to finding naturalization records. Any other advice on this front?

Thank you.
Pam

Hello Pam
being an illegitime child was a shame during that time.
So you can try to get a copy of his original birth record, writing a request written only in italian, to

Comune
Ufficio di Stato Civile
Piazza Plebiscito, n. 1
CAP 83031
Ariano Irpino (AV)
Italy

or you can request it to ARCHIVIO DI STATO DI AVELLINO

http://wwwdb.archivi.beniculturali.it/S ... VELLINO%22

or you can rent Ariano Irpino civil record microfilm from FHL (mormon)

http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Library ... o+civile++

I hope it helps, bye Riccardo :lol:
