I have been searching for hours, and have found a few other records. It is difficult without the records being indexed. I am looking, however, for the marriage of Antonio Filigno and Elisabetta Giannini which would have occurred in Roseto Valfortore sometime before 1896. Perhaps 1890-1895. This is one record I have been seeking for many years. Here is the birth of their son, Giuseppe Filigno (1896):

Wow! Thanks! I fell asleep looking for Roseto Valfortore's marriages in 1895. I found them and searched all of 1894, but didn't get to 1893 yet! It looks like Antonio's father was Giuseppe Filigno (I can't make out mother's name). Elisabetta's father: Stefano Giannini and mother: Colomba Canioli ? Would you be able to translate? I would like to know their ages and birth places look like Roseto Valfortore, but not sure. Thanks!! I wish I knew when Antonio and Elisabetta died. I heard they remained in Italy. I believe Antonio was alive in 1920 in Roseto Valfortore, but I have no leads on Elisabetta. Thanks so much!

Wow!!! Thank you both a million times! I have been entering data for hours; going back several generations from the transcriptions on familysearch.org! This is the 1905 of birth of Giovanni Antonio Ruggiero, whose father was Domenico Ruggiero. Is Domenico not mentioned on this birth record? I am trying to find the marriage of Domenico Ruggiero to Rosa Maria Palumbro/Palumbo. Their first known child was Emilio Ruggiero born in Roseto Valfortore on 27 September 1897.

Thank you!!! I did finally see his name... Domenico Ruggiero supposedly was born 05 November 1868 (perhaps and likely in Roseto Valfortore. He married Rosa Maria Palumbo probably sometime before 1897, as their first son Emilio Ruggiero was supposed to have been born in 1897. Rosa Maria was supposedly born 16 July 1871.

My grandfather's brother's wife was Elizabeth Mary "Liz" Filigno Kurko (1922-2003)... I knew her well, and also knew her mother. Rosina Gertrude "Rose" (DiFranco) (Americanized to DeFranke) Filigno (1905-2003). Aunt Liz was the granddaughter of Antonio and Elisabetta (Giannini) Filigno and of Luigi DiFranco (1878-1916) and Maria Giuseppa (Ruggiero) DiFranco Santavicca (1881-1952) (whose birth record is above). We used to drop Aunt Liz off at this house in my hometown (it is very nearby where we all live); but the house is now torn down. She said her cousins lived there (the Ruggieros). I never did find out from her HOW they were cousins, and I honestly do not think SHE KNEW exactly how. The "Ruggiero" that lived in the home was the one surviving daughter of Domenico and Rosa Maria (Palumbo) Ruggiero. I later became good friends with Domenico and Rosa Maria's great-granddaughter. She is the granddaughter of Giovanni Antonio Ruggiero (1905 birth record above). I hope we can find a connection between my Aunt Liz's family and Domenico's family (my friend's family).
