Help with a town listed on a marriage record

Postby pm16 » 19 Sep 2016, 01:44

Hi,
I have a New York marriage record for Rose Vedimiglia and Nicola Carodino from 1920. It says that Nicola Carodino was born in Motendi, Italy however, I cannot find any Motendi. Rose was from Vatolla...is there a Motendi close to there?

Thank you for any help you can give.

Vatolla is a frazione of the comune Perdifumo, in Salerno province. Montendi might be a corruption of the town of Monte di Procida, Naples province? Are you sure of the name Carodino?

I think he was Nicola Corradino:

https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:X4T7-VT8

He was probably from Matonti, a hamlet of Laureana Cilento (not far from Perdifumo), may be this one:

Corradino
Nome: Nicola
Classe: 1886
Comune di nascita: Laureana
Corradino Nicola di Gennaro e Gallo Orsola nato il 25/11/1886 a Laureana di professione
Giuseppe "Pippo" Moccaldi
