Re: Name recognition assistance

In the current phone book for the town, the surname is written as Tronnolone. At first, I was going with the m instead of the two n's but then changed my mind. Tromolone is not found anywhere in Potenza province currently.

Re: Meaning of the family name Dacomo?

The name Frugoli is the plural of the word frugolo. It means a very lively child who can't sit still. Also it means a "rocket." Both are the meanings, according to Prof Joseph G Fucilla, in his book Our Italian Surnames.

Re: Death Certificates from 1950's

Due to Italian government privacy laws,* Italian civil records for the 1950s are not yet available to the public except, I believe, by writing directly to the town in question and stating the reason for needing a copy of the record. I have one such record which my grandfather himself requested back ...

Re: Migration "fail": to the US and back... :P

I just want to briefly address an issue, raised by Silvio in his post above, concerning Italian immigrants permanently returning to their country of origin. Just because an Italian immigrant to the U.S., or anywhere else, decided to permanently return to his native county, does not mean that that pe...

Re: Migration "fail": to the US and back... :P

No problem, Silvio. Didn't even notice your mistake. BTW, you're wondering why your ancestor would have returned to Italy rather than staying in the U.S.. The subject of return migration is interesting. I will threw out some ideas concerning this subject to you soon.

Re: Migration "fail": to the US and back... :P

The ship manifests were actually created in the country of origin at the ports there. When an immigrant arrived in the U.S. in the early 1900s, he/she was asked a series of 29 questions. The inspectors here were just looking to see if the answers matched what was originally written on the manifest. ...
