Re: Translation please?

You'll want the page immediately preceding this one. This states that the child's name is Antonio and witnesses were Giovanni Amoriello, 28, and Luigi Mauro, 22. The information about birth date and parents will be on the previous page.

Re: One particula great-uncle who's not on the map

Not sure if this helps but there is nobody with the name Carmela Calandra or anything similar born in Roma proper from 1896-1916. From what I saw Calandra is likely the surname rather than Carmelo, this name wasn't in the indices. Calandra has some variants.

Re: Avellino transcriptions

Grottolella marriages 1809-1865 sorted by brides & grooms. Something new with this one that I was in the middle of doing before I lost some spreadsheets - some names are colored blue to represent a name that was not provided in the original record, but can be deduced from other records (i.e. dea...

Re: Avellino transcriptions

If anybody is following this I had to take a large break and have not started yet on Grottolella marriages. I lost a significant portion of my records due to two (!) sequential hard-drive failures and am still reeling a bit :?

I plan on continuing soon.

Re: Lepore / Lepore

You might find some in Manocalzati which is close to Montefalcione. There were a few cases of people from Montefalcione getting married in Montefredane off the top of my head. These villages are all pretty close, it wasn't out of the question to travel. If you know Serino was from Montefalcione, cou...

Re: Lepore / Lepore

It is somewhat common around Avellino. I see it every now and again in Montefredane, Grottolella, and Capriglia Irpina, plus the nearby villages. Also lots in Benevento.

Re: Need some help looking at a document

The name could be 'almost-right'. People rarely make up names totally out of the blue so it must have come from somewhere. Either way it is apparently not correct. Other children: Michele born 6 July 1878 died 21 Dec 1878 Another Michele Spina born 2 Oct 1879 died 27 Jan 1880 Teresa born 13 Jan 1881...

Re: Need some help looking at a document

It only takes one person to put in a wrong name, the rest copy that into their own trees without checking. Where that name came from though, I'm not sure right now. You'll note she was a widow when she was married so it could have been her first husband's name, though women did not change their name...

Re: THE ONGOING MYSTERY OF FRANK LANDINO

Not saying it's correct but I do have cases in my own family of immigrants with a second wife who filled out a death certificate with highly inaccurate information. Wrong father's name (especially in Italians where middle names were often used), age 15 years off, etc. It happens. You mentioned your ...

Re: THE ONGOING MYSTERY OF FRANK LANDINO

Is it possible that he remarried to this Jennie/Vincenza right after the 1910 census? This couple had a son Martin in Pittsfield in 1911. The easiest answer is that your Francesco is the one that died in 1920 and she just gave the wrong information for his parents. His age discrepancy is not unreaso...

Re: Bartolome Dr Ocello surname

That information come from here: https://www.familysearch.org/search/fil ... at=1494911
Earliest birth record on familysearch are from 1872 - nothing on Antenati - so you might have to contact the local archives.
