Re: Documentary Film

I checked the site and it is no longer listed. They do have another very good film that
deals with rural life in southern Italy titled "Cristo si e fermato a Eboli".
Go to the web site I posted, click on sort by country, click on Italy,
and search through the titles.

They have a large selection of Italian movies.
I purchased "Tree of the Wooden Clogs" from them.
It is a very good film.

Re: Searching for Great Grandparents siblings

Barb,
As was suggested by Marty if you use the death records you can go back another generation or two.
In fact in my tree of the side of my family from Casalbore I have a Maria Corso Bn. 1750
Died 1810.

Re: Ignelzi and Luongo families from Avellino

Hi Andrea, The microfilm index number I have are for the records from Casalbore and I'm sure they would be helpful in your search. Since the names and dates match it is pretty certain they are from Casalbore. I found them on a list of emigrants from Casalbore. My grandmothers name was also Lucia Ign...

If these dates/ages match what you have , I can possibly get a little more info for you. I also have the mi...

Re: Ignelzi and Luongo families from Avellino

Hi Andrea, My mother was from Casalbore. Her grandmother on her father's side was Fidela Luongo. Her grandfather on her mother's side was Nicolamaria Ignelzi. These are common names in Casalbore. If you could establish a link to any of these people, I could provide you info on 3 prior generations. A...

Re: "BOOK ABOUT BENEVENTO SURNAME AND FAMILIES"

Hi,
I have just read this post and wondered if you only covered the inhabitants of
Benevento, or the surrounding villages also.
I am researching the name Lamparelli from Casalbore.
Thank you.

Re: Last name origin

Hi Nikki,
In the book "Our Italian Surnames" by Joseph G. Fucilla
there are explanations of several possible meanings and origions
of the name depending on the region of Italy it is found.

Re: Need Help Reading an Italian Name

Another thing to consider is that if his name was copied from a document
written in Italy, many time the surname is witten first, then the given name.

We see Pasquale's oldest son at least 2-3 times a year. The younger at least once a year. We have a family reunion ...

Re: Dangoia

I'm sorry I don't know. Generally in Italy the first son was named after the husbands father. Since Vincenzo's first son was Pasquale if either of them had a first son named Pasquale it might indicate the relationship. Also I didn't mention in my last post that Pasqule's sister Rose married my my mo...

Re: Dangoia

Tiffany,
Vincenzo and Antonia moved to Chicago Heights, IL on 23rd St.
in what was called the "Hungry Hill" a predominantly Italian area of the City. Their son Pasquale, born in the U.S. was my Uncle, married my mother's sister.
If I can help with anything let me know.
