Re: Iaciofano family in Busso, campobasso

Hi Dennis The post you're referring to was in response to one by amirando. Geronimo Bernardo Villano and Catarina de Robertis are not our common ancestors. Our common ancestors are Nicola Ranallo (b.ca. 1729; d. 09 JUN 1797 in Busso) and Isabella Picciano (d. 25 OCT 1799 in Busso). I sent you a Pedi...

Re: Giuseppe Picciano

There's a bit of a mystery here. Giuseppe Picciano's birth record indicates that he is the son of Mariantonia Picciano and her fiance Ferdinando Ziccardi. The record even indicates that his name is Giuseppe Picciano Ziccardi. Yet his marriage record states that his father is unknown. There appears t...

Re: Iaciofano family in Busso, campobasso

Alex, I did a quick search of the Ellis Island records and found the following: Giovanni Miranda, age 12, arrived at Ellis Island on 16 DEC 1897 on the Alesia . His last residence was Busso and he was going to his father Pietro's residence. This appears to be your GGF Giovanni Antonio. If so, then h...

Re: Rosina Mastropaolo in Campobasso, Campobasso

Vanessa - I have a database that was extracted from the church records in Campobasso. In particular, the baptismal records of la Cattedrale. It appears (although I can't be sure) that all baptisms took place at la Cattedrale. Books IV through VI cover the period JUL 1636 through 1724. However, I cou...

Re: Rosina Mastropaolo in Campobasso, Campobasso

I've read your posts with interest because I've rarely seen anyone make progress identifying the parents of a proietto. My GGF was a proietto and it's a complete dead end for me. I'd like to add some of my data to your quest, some of it is repetitive and some new: Rosina Mastropaolo, daughter of Ang...

Re: Iaciofano family in Busso, campobasso

I am very curious about the Iaciofano family. I am a American Mirando, but my family is convinced we are Miranda's from Busso, Italy. My great-grandfather Antonio Mirando/a, when he immigrated to America married a Iaciofano. Her name is Theresa (Tessie), her mother and father's names are Joseph (b1...

Re: What are Diversi Records

Atti di diversi are most often found before 1865. These records might include anything. However, the most common documents seen among the atti di diversi are (1) birth records of still-born children (morti-nati), (2) birth records of abandoned children (nati di proietti), (3) records of deaths of in...
