Petrecca/Tamburri/Arcari Castelpetroso

Post by silvana/australia » 24 Apr 2005, 12:50

Dear members,

My ggfather Angelo Petrecca worked (on & off) in America during late 1890 to about 1920. He stayed with his sister Virginia Arcari. I can not find any Ellis Island records for him & wondered what other way he could have entered America to work. I am not sure where in America his sister lived, maybe New York. Only other info I have on him :

parents: ? Maria & Adolloratto Petrecca

brother: Nicola - died during WW1

wife: Giovannina Petrecca (nee Arcari) died 1941

children: Adolloratto died 6/1/1940 - wife Rosa Tamburri (her parents Asunta & Giovanni Tamburri - brother Domenico, sister Lucia)
Philomena - husband Carmen Giancola
Marietta - husband Pipino Tamburri
Michelina - husband Angelo D'Franchesco
Nicholina - never married

There should be some record of him arriving or working in America and census records for Virginia Arcari his sister. They were very close & she helped her brother a lot.

Not much to go on. Any info on any family members would be welcomed.

Regards Silvana

Hi Silvana,

Just for clarification:

You are searching for Angelo Petrecca - Do you know year of birth? Place of birth in Italy?
His wife was Giovannina Petrecca (nee Arcari).
His sister was Virginia Arcari. Do you have an age for her?
Is Arcari the sister's maiden or married name?
His wife and sister had the same surname?

There are other ports beside Ellis Island that immigrants could enter the US. Not all are on-line.

Hi Silvana,
really searching for you, I find only an record, last possibility, (otherwise, no find, why all possible records, final destination Chicago), but this is an Arcangelo Petrecca/petracca final destination New York : ... 3300120373

The name Addolorato, let me think Boiano/Castelpetroso area...
I want search again.

regards, suanj

Hi, I've just received some info regarding my g-daughter's Italian family. This is my first foray into Italian records. We have a Rosa Arcaro(1919) and Giovanni Tamburri(1912) both from Castelpetroso.
Giovanni was from indiprete. I think his mother might have been Libera, but I m not sure. Do you recognise any names.
