Confetti Pelino Family / Mary Pelino

Post by gcolo » 10 Jan 2008, 07:26

I've traced my ancestry back to Giovanni Carifa who wed Mary Pelino. I've been told by other family that Mary is related to relatives of the Confetti Pelino candy company, in Sulmona. I think Mary was born around 1880, which might make her a sister of Mario Pelino. Pelino's web site ( has quite a bit of family history, but no mention of other siblings. Can anybody offer any help? Thanks.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

There are some films that you can order from LDS, but they only go through 1865 so finding Mary's birth act would be a stretch. But you may be able to find birth, marriages and deaths for Pelino's and Carifa's. You will probably have to write to the office in Sulmona to get their birth acts.

Here is a link so you can find your nearest Family History Center (FHC) so you can order and view the films. ... et_fhc.asp

Here are the links for the films.

Church records 1820-1823 ... umns=*,0,0

Civil Records 1809-1865 ... ato+civile++

Write down the film numbers you'd like to view and go to your FHC to order. The cost is about $5.50 USD per film and takes about 4 weeks to receive.

Let us know if you have any questions, or if you have any other information you can post so we can help you..
