Re: Eh Cumpari?

Pippo, thank for your answer.

Re: Eh Cumpari?

I used to think it was only used for a godfather/godson relationship, usually of different generations, but I've since heard it could be for close friends of the same generation. Today, they would say BFF. Of course, my grandfather became godfather to the other man's son but I think that was just in...

Eh Cumpari?

Anyone have a relative who was referred to as someone's cumpari? If so, what was their relationship like? A distant relative of my generation suggested a particular person might have been my grandfather's cumpari, but no one is alive to confirm it or to explain it. My grandfather and his alleged cum...

Re: Regional dishes, cooking styles

What comes to mind is: beef braciole with hard boiled egg inside, veal scacciata, Italian wedding soup, green olives marinated with carrots and celery, green salad with olives and orange slices, and pizza with oil, oregano, crushed red pepper and maybe anchovies (no red sauce or melted cheese) - sim...

Re: Hit a stone wall in Valmontone

Do civil records before 1871 for Valmontone exist but haven't been digitized by anyone (Family Search, Ancestry, Antenati, etc.) or do they not exist?

Could they be available for years before 1871 under a different geographical entity like Lazio or Roma?

Is your passport current?

Re: Anthony Ruggiero

I'd say that's a different Antonio Ruggiero, born in Riccia in 1883, married to Josephine Ciccotelli, and living in Philadelphia. https://www.ancestrylibrary.com/family-tree/person/tree/41517629/person/19638226401/facts?_phsrc=UEL13&_phstart=successSource In the 1910 Census, your AR was recorded...

Re: Help with ship manifest info

I'd say the likeliest candidates are Giulio who arrived in 1906 to join Coccia and Pio who arrived in 1909 leaving behind his wife Ciafrei.

Can you tie the Bucci on S. 8th St to the Proscio on S. 8th St.?
