Italian name change document

My cousin shared with me the name change document for our Vitelli family members from 1909. I believe I got it translated pretty well, and see that it refers to the requester Francesco Saverio Vitiello, and his 9 siblings, Maria Francesca, Crescenzo, Giuseppe, Anna, Enrico, Elisa, Raffaele, Vincenzo...

Re: Spena o De Spenis family of Naples

Grazie Luigi

I did find that article online, and translated it into English but it wasn’t really informative regarding my specific family line. I was trying to see if there were any other resources to further verify or deny the information.

Giovanna is the daughter of Don Giuseppe Spena with direct descedents of the Counts Giovanni, Antnio and Matteo Spena of Naples. I wonder if any of the Ital...

Re: Frattamaggiore, Napoli, Italy

And yes you are right that Francesco did well for himself in hemp rope making. I believe that is how my Rafaela met my GGgrandfather Leonardo Mazza. He was a coralline in Torre Del Greco and Francesco sold lots of ropes to the corraline and fisherman in the Amalfi coast.

Re: Frattamaggiore, Napoli, Italy

Raffaela had two older known sons before my great uncle Crescenzo was born in 1874. So my guess was she was married around 1870. Her birth year would be around 1845-1850?

Re: Frattamaggiore, Napoli, Italy

I cant make out the date, but I do see that the month of birth was September. His parents were Francesco Ferro and Giovanna...

Frattamaggiore, Napoli, Italy

I have been trying to find info on my GGGma, Rafaela Ferro who married Leonardo Mazza from Torre Del Greco. I know they lived in TG, but it was just discovered that Rafaela Ferro may been the sister to Florindo Ferro b 1853 - d 1925, a physician from Frattamaggiore. This seems likely, since my GGpa ...

Re: help with death record

OK, I have Seen some of the indexes but I didn't know if there was a way to jump right to it without going page by page. It sounds like that is not an option....

Re: help with death record

How do you jump to the index? I have been going through the records page by page. Is there something I am missing that you can do a quick check to see if the records are there?
