Vince (Vinciguerra)

Postby Shrugs05 » 25 Jun 2008, 04:38

Hello all,

I am having trouble finding information regarding my GGF Carl Vince and his parents due to name changes. Now, my family and I know Vince is not his original surname. We believe it was Vinciguerra (there could be misspellings with that too). Additionally, my GGF was born in 1895 and came over with his mother (Philomena) and father (Ambrogio or Ambrosa?). When they came to the U.S., we're uncertain but they moved to Trumbull County in Ohio. If anyone could guide me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

Is this your Ambrogio? If so this is a 2nd trip with lots of info in the manifest. :D

Wow, thanks everyone. I have a question regarding the surname. I noticed from the records you all discovered, the surname is misspelled few times, what is the correct spelling of the surname? Thanks.

My family spells it Vinciguerra, but they are from the province of Benevento. The name is fairly common in Italy.

Okay folks, I have again hit a road block. I requested birth records of Carlo, Ambrogio, and Filomena from Bellona and have not heard any word (it has been four months). Is it possible that Bellona is not the right town? Any suggestions? Thank you.
