There are 6 persons currently residing in Salaparuta (Trapani) postale 91020 who are surnamed Accardo. You can either send one letter to all listed Accardo persons there and ask them if they are related or you can obtain the requisite FHL microfilm for Salaparuta for civil records of all births,marriages and deaths from 1820 to 1900. (www.familyserach.or for location of nearest FHL library). =Peter=
okay... i just read the thread and summary regarding the Accardo/Ugo family in the other forum... seems that some things could indeed be found on the microfilm i have access to. let me know if you'd like me to look for anything next time i visit the FHC.
Giuseppe Accardo/Vittorio Ugo and Giuseppa Bruno were both born about 1848 and I believe were married in about 1872. I think if you could look in the marriages and find them it may help solve a lot of mystery we currently have on who Giuseppa Bruno really married, an Accardo or a Ugo!!!
By the wayI have Maggio in my family tree through marriage, Mike Maggio born in Siciliy 17 Jul 1893 died in Beaumont Texas 4 Sep 1974
for what it's worth, i checked Salaparuta on http://www.avitree.com and see Accardo, Bruno and Ropollo all there, but no Ugo. in fact, i don't see Ugo anywhere near there. doesn't mean much. i'm just sayin'.
lots of Accardos in Santa Ninfa as well, by the way.
very interesting....this has been a real mystery....i think Ugo's are really from the nortwest Italy...my Accardo side had mostly light colred hair and blue eyes...makes me wonder...thanks so much anxious to hear from you
There are many light skinned, blue eyed blondesand red heads in Abruzzo as well as a result of the resettlement of the 10th roman legion when they returned to Italy from Roman briton enroute to the Jewish wars and dropped off their veterans in Abruzzo in one of those Roman GI bills passed by the Roman senate to open up Abruzzo. another perspective.=Peter=
Hello My names Joe im from Australia, I was googling trying to find information and came across this page, id love to know where online I could find information on my family who came to Australia from Salaparuta in 1969 after the big earthquake in 68
so far I know members are from "La Sala" Poggioreale, Gibellina and possibly a great grandfather from Catalafimi, any help is hugely appreciated.
Vittorio Ugo did marry Giuseppa Bruno. Just was in Salaparuta and saw the record.
He was ignoti -- a foundling of unknown parents.
Giuseppa's parents were a Bruno and Nunzia Roppolo.
I believe Vittorio emigrated with their daughter Caterina -- later Kate on the SS Trinicia on November 7, 1892.
Giuseppa Bruno came with the others. I think about 1898.
I believe their were four sisters. Caterina (Kate), Antonina (Lena), Giuseppa (Josephine or Josie), and Nunzia (Nancy). Perhaps there was a brother or brothers too -- a Framcesco (Frank)? I think all were born Ugo's. How they can to be called Accardo I do not know unless Vittorio could not acknowledge his true parentage until he left Salaparuta.
I do know there was a close link to the Accardo's both in Salaparuta and then in Louisiana.
Nunzia is my husband's bis nonna.
Giuseppa's sister's children also went to the same area in Louisiana.
