VERRECCHIA / BOVE

Postby Caro75 » 12 Mar 2008, 11:33

Hello,

My name is Carina and I have just started doing my husband's family tree. His maternal grandmother Felicie Verrecchia was born in France to Italian parents. We know very little about them. They died when Felicie was only 14 & 16 years old. From her naturalisation certificate we know that their parents were Arcario Verrecchia born on 05/12/1869 in Pozzilli and Micheline Bove born in Atina on the 03/02/1885 or 1886 (not very sure because the writing on the document is very poor). They had 2 daughters Felicie born in Paris in 1920 and Genevieve born in Paris as well in 1917.
We know that Arcario (and probably Micheline) went to England then to Belgium before settling down in Paris. But we don't know if we can find anything about this.
I have noticed in various forums that a lot of italian immigrants were born in Pozzilli and Atina. So I was wondering if someone has come accross those names. We don't know if they had brothers or sisters. It's a complete mystery. One thing Felicie remembers is that there was a bishop on her mother's side.

Also, I would like to get Arcario and Micheline's birth certificates. Can someone let me know where I should write and ask for those? They were both born before 1900.

I would be very grateful if someone could help me.

Many thanks
Carina

You can write to Atina for the birth certificate but the clerk will likely not reply unless you have the full birth date, and it is unlikely he will do a Stato di famiglia.
Atina still has the Register of the Population from 1860 which will provide information on brothers and sisters but the books are very large and cannot be photocopied.
Pozzilli records have been microfilmed up to 1899 so you can search these yourself at any Family History Center. www.familysearch.org
Atina records are on film only to 1865.

Thanks for your reply.
I found this address on this forum:

Servizi Demografici
Piazza Saturno - Centro Storico
03042 ATINA (FR)
ITALY

Is this the correct address? I am trying to get the file that Felicie and Genevieve's parents had to fill regarding the naturalisation of their daughters. I am hoping Michelina's birth date appears clearly. I will try get the correct birth date before writting to them anyway.

Thank you
Carina

I have details of the Scaramuzza family that came to the UK from Pozzilli among the documents i hold there are details of a Benedetto Cocozza who married a Maria Carmela Verrecchia
Maria Scaramuzza married Nicandro Cocozza both came from Pozzilli to huddersfield in the 1880's
the document mentioning Verrecchia is a hand drawn family tree from the mayor of Pozzilli

Wow, how did you get this document if I may ask? I need to get Arcario Verrecchia's birth certificate to know if they are related.
Do you know where I should write?

Also, I have one more question. How did they travel to the UK? If by boat, is there a passenger list somewhere?

Many thanks

Thank you for all the links you posted. I've already had a look at the French website/forum but no luck so far. Nobody heard of an Arcario Verrecchia or Michelina Bove.
I keep searching anyway - I am not giving up. I think my next step will be trying to get the birth certificates of Arcario & Michelina.

Thank you very much for your help. It's really appreciated.

Hello,

I have some news - Today I received Arcario's death certificate. And I was very happy to read that he was the son of Felix VERRECCHIA & Rosalie VERRECCHIA from Pozzilli (provincia de Laringo Sasso).

So if those names ring a bell to anyone, please let me know.

Many Thanks
Carina
