Looking for Garippa in Contursi area

Postby oceanhut » 24 Apr 2010, 13:33

Hello,

I am trying to find a little more information about my relatives. The majority of the Garippa's now live in New Jersey, USA.

My great-Grandfather Salvatore Garippa was Born in Contursi. His Father was Giovanni Garippa, and had a brother Rafaele Garippa and a Sister Concetta Garippa. Giovanna would have been born in Contursi around 1850. Is anyone here familiar with these names?

If it helps, Salvatore Garippa was a Christian missionary during the 1930s-1950s and started many evangelical churches around Italy. Some still exist today

Thanks so much!

John

There are 3 Garippa listed in the Contursi telephone directory and one business bearing the garippa surname. www.paginebianche.it (select TERME). Thee may be relatives and should you wish to write them go to
www.initaly.com/gene/mem/letter1.htm for form letters in Italian to potential relatives.

If you wish documents then go to www.angelfire.com/ok3/pearlsofwisdom/it ... tters.html =Peter=
