La Rocca Family

Post by Mitch » 15 Feb 2009, 23:23


I recently started trying to find out more about my family's history. I do not have much info. so it's kind of a shot in the dark, but if anyone can help me out, i would really appreciate it! All I know is that My grandmother's maiden name is Mary (Gloria) La Rocca. Her Father was Baaldassare or Baldasario La Rocca. I know that He had my grandmother out of wed-lock, and somewhat in secret with my great grandmother Julia Civitello. I also know that he had 2 Familys, one in Sicily, and one in the states. (somewhere in the north east). Like I said, I know it's pretty far out there, but if anyone is firmiliar with the names, please let me know!

Can you confirm place of birth? date of birth? place of death and death date? Husbands full name? Did she have any brothers or sisters?
There is also a Larocca family living with Civitello........with the names of Mary and Julia included.
