Searching for Castello d'Alife

Postby ryanjo50 » 13 Jun 2004, 18:11

According to documents I have, my grandparents came to AMerica from the Commune of Castello d'Alife in 1924. The Commune was/is in the province of Caserta. This Commune seems not to exist any longer - I have some information suggesting that it was renamed and became Castelo del Matese, but I don't know how to confirm this. ANy information greatly appreciated.

Hi,
I'm new in this forum but I hope to be helpful!
A lot of town in this area changed their own name from 'd'alife' to 'del matese' or only 'Matese' or simply without suffix about in the '70's
for example :
- I live in "Piedimonte Matese" once known as "Piedimote d'Alife"
- another town is "Sant'Angelo" once known as "Sant'Angelo d'Alife"

In my opinion your ancestors town is Castello del Matese, a little town in Caserta district with about 1489 inhabitants.
Postal code is 81010, phone code is 0823 (Caserte disctrict)
You can found a lot of information about it on web but I think it's only in italian.
PS: Castello mean Castel and this name came from the castel inthe town center the was the first building in the town

If you need other info write me!!!
bye bye form italy!

Currently name town is Castello del Matese; ancient village called only"Castello" the 26 Oct 1862 change name, for law of King of Italy, in "Castello d'Alife", until to 13 August 1970 this town was called Castello D'Alife; after change newly the name and call Castello del Matese.

Ciao ryanjo50
Sono Michele ed abito a Castello del Matese (fino al 1968 si chiamava Castello d'Alife).
il codice postale è 81016.
Se vuoi altre informazioni sono felicissimo. In più quest'anno, nella festa che si organizza a Castello, chiamata "La Giosta", abbiamo fatto una mostra riguardante gli emigranti in america e registrati sul sito http://www.ellisisland.org.
Mi farebbe piacere sapere di più di te.
Ciao. Michele

Michele grazie per la correzione del codice postale 71016 a 81016. Mi sono sbagliato coi numeri che le dite sono piu grande che le chiave. Peter NYC
