Re: Searching for Vito Calise from Forio

So I guess there's no way at all to find out who her family was. Probably the same for her husband. Would Giola even be her real last name? If so, how did they even know what it was when they didn't bother to list the names of the parents?

Re: Searching for Vito Calise from Forio

I just found the birth record for Berenice Giola. Could someone please translate this? I get the feeling, though, that even this doesn't give the names of the parents. I found this in the Diversi files.

Re: Searching for Info About Francesco Cigliano - Forio d'Is

Do you think there might be birth or marriage records for Nicola Cigliano and Rosaria Trofa or Luigi Carneglia and Rachele Castaldi? They are the parents of Francesco Cigliano (born abt 1830) and Maria Giuseppa Carneglia (born abt 1833). They don't appear to have the years to find Francesco and Mari...

Re: Looking for info ABT Giovanni Impagliazzo of Forio

I don't know why it's proving difficult to find any records about Giovanni Impagliazzo or Clementina Miglaccio.

Re: Looking for Information About The Ancestry of Onofrio Fa

Isn't it kind of odd for the one record to say she's a property owner, yet her parents aren't known?

Re: Looking for Information About The Ancestry of Onofrio Fa

Thank you. I wonder what brought these two together. Doesn't seem like they would have normally run into each other.

Re: Looking for Information About The Ancestry of Onofrio Fa

Thank you! Is there a birth record for Esposita Piraino around? Maybe that would give the names of her parents.

Re: Searching for Info About Francesco Cigliano - Forio d'Is

I just found the birth record for Francesco Paolo Matarese. I was surprised to find out that he was born in February 1868. It also mentions the marriage to Anna Maria Cigliano.

Here is the birth record:

Re: Looking for Information About The Ancestry of Onofrio Fa

Thank you! Is Petralia Soprana near Castelbuono? I'm surprised to be hearing that name, since the other Faillas I've been looking at were from there and I expected that he was from there as well. Could his family have had money? Supposedly, he and Esposita were among the first people in Castelbuono ...

Re: Looking for Information About The Ancestry of Onofrio Fa

Wow! Thank you! I hope it gives the names of their parents. Does it give the ages for people? According to the death record someone found above, Onofrio was born about 1856, not 1854, like I thought.

Re: Searching for Info About Francesco Cigliano - Forio d'Is

I just came across a sister for Francesco Paolo Matarese named Carmela Matarese. She was born on July 8, 1862 in Forio. Here is the birth record for her:
