D'Isanto, DiDomenico in southern Italy

Post by tgoettl » 18 Mar 2012, 05:47

I am looking for info about my grandparents and ancestors in Italy. My mom's name was Salvatore D'Isanto (b. 1929). She married an American soldier when she was 16, left Italy and did not contact with her family until many years later - after her parents were gone. Her papers say she was born in Pozzuoli, but she tells us she was born south of Naples, maybe near Capri and that her family moved to Pozzuoli when she was young. Her parents were Giuseppe and Annuziata DiDomenico D'Isanto. Grandpa D'Isanto was in the military stationed in Pozzuoli and they lived in Rione Terra in Pozzuoli. She didn't remember her paternal grandparents at all and remembered her maternal grandmother only as nonna. She still has family in Pozzuoli, Naples, Rome and surrounding area, but they have been no help as far as finding info about the ancestors. Mom told a story about her grandmother being from a wealthy family and getting disowned due to "marrying beneath her." With the info I have, how can I get more information about my grandparents and gr-grandparents. Thanks, Tina

Welcome to the website Tina
First of all if your sure she was born in Pozzuoli I would go to a Family History Library and get Civil registration of Pozzuoli (Napoli), 1809-1929 births, marriages, and deaths from the municipality of Pozzuoli in the province of Naples. Includes indexes.
