Causalufio? - Listed as last residence in ship's manifest

Postby bnelson » 11 Jun 2011, 17:58

Can anyone help me identify the town of last residence listed on line 22 of the following ship's manifest?

https://docs.google.com/leaf?id=0B7gLZR-qaHY9MWNiNDIwNmMtYTVlMC00YzhlLWE3YjEtNzA1OTgzZmYwMjQ3&hl=en_US&authkey=CJnN5a8L

The handwriting isn't too difficult, but I'm not sure I am reading it correctly since I've never heard of the town and googleing all spelling variations is coming up empty. To me it looks like "Causalufio", but maybe I am reading it incorrectly? As far as I know, my ancestor lived in Siano, but may have moved to a new town, which would be an important clue for my further research.

Thanks!

Bill

The town looks like "Cantalupo"

There are four possibilities... however, none are in Campania

# Cantalupa, province: Torino - region: Piedmont
# Cantalupo in Sabina, province: Rieti - region: Lazio
# Cantalupo Ligure, province: Alessandria - region: Piedmont
# Cantalupo nel Sannio, province: Isernia - region: Molise

Best guess would be Cantalupo nel Sannio, which is the closest to Campania Region of those listed above...

If you decide to write to the comune to request a search of records...

ADDRESS:
Ufficio dello Stato Civile
Piazza Gennaro de Majo, n. 1
86092 Cantalupo nel Sannio (IS)
ITALY

You might want to try this site to see what surnames exist in the Campania Region today...

http://italia.indettaglio.it/eng/cognom ... pania.html

Put in "Caiazz" (without the last letter) and choose "Begins with"...this will produce a list of towns in Campania where the name exists... Siano is one of them, but maybe another will look familiar or resemble the town on the manifest :-)

After looking at some other occurrences of the letters n, t, and p elsewhere on the page, I believe you are correct with the name Cantalupo. Thanks you very much for the help and suggestions!
