Comments:I am sure you cannot help and I am considering DNA as a last resort however. My grandfather was abandoned at St Francis Orphanage when he was born in July of 1896. He was taken by a family by the name of caparrelli to Pico and grew up there and met my grandmother whose family has been in Pico for a long time. I have traced my grandmother's family back to the 1700's but even with a trip to Pico, there is no one that knows much more information other than one aunt who says that in those days when women had a baby they were asked to nurse orphan babies and this family probably did that and took him home with her baby. He was very poor and my granparents were described as she was the pretty one and he was the poor one. I think that possibly he was born in Croatia which was italian at that time for the following reason. His name was Luigi Lossini and he was born in July and there is a place in Croatia call Lossinj. On my tirp I tried to find St. Francis but it is closed now and used as offices. He served in the italian army in roma married my grandmother had my father and came to the USA. I have all kinds of information but cannot find out where he was born. I would love to know if anyone else has had a similiar situation and how they were able to get the information.

Evidentally, that name is quite unique to the area of Monacilioni, and the town itself is very small. I imagine we have some ancestors in common somewhere! All I know is that my grandfather's name was Benedetto Naimo, and married Maria Nina diMartinisin New York sometime in the mid 19-teens. They had one son, my father Fred Naimo, now deceased.

Comments:RuthAnn,
Thank you for sharing your wonderful website. My Italian roots come from my father, and I believe that the genealogy is fairly well known from 3 of his grandparents (Tiberio, Diana and Piroli), but the Ventiquattro name came when my Great-grandfather (Alfredo Ventiquattro) was reportedly "found in a basket" on the front steps of an orphanage near Rome, Italy (circa 1880). His adopting parents gave him the name "ventiquattro" because, as the story goes, he was found on the 24th of the month. We really don't have a clue about Nono Alfed's family history prior to that. If anyone has any info, feel free to contact me.

On another note, I'd like to share some news regarding the release of my new music CD, which features the song, "Christmas Italian Style." The theme of this ballad centers on the joyful and treasured family gatherings at Nona's house, on Christmas Eve, during my childhood and young adult years. Details can be found on the web at: www.cdbaby.com/cd/tom24tvii.

Again, thanks, RuthAnn. Best wishes for continued success with all endeavors concerning this Dreambook.

Sincerely,
Thomas Ventiquattro II (Tom 24)

Comments:Palma Sabato was my best friend as a child. She and her parents and brother lived on the second floor over a sewing and mending shop where her mom worked. It was right next door to the candy shop on the corner on Leland Avenue. I can still remember her mom yelling out that upstairs window. My father, mother and I lived in an apartment at 1230 Leland Avenue On (I think) the 3rd floor.

My cousin who became a nun upon her graduation, Sister Grace Henke also lived in the apartment house at 1230 Leland Avenue, Bronx, as a child. She has been a nun working in a hospital in downtown Manhattan for lots of years. I don't know if she's still with us or not, but I have found that she has written (authored) several books on Medical MATH. I think she and her mom, Adrienne Henke lived on the sccond floor. They had a cute little Boston Terrier named "putzie" Grace's father (Gene) died when she was very young. Can you help me get more info on this family?? I live in Tampa, Florida these days.

Pasquale and Giovanni seemed to be related to Evandro Pelloni who emigrated to the USA in 1920 (he was a merchant jeweler and he married Lucia Malfetano, a cousin of mine).

Comments: Some relatives I am related too. Dave and Linda Ariganello my parents. Grandpa was Vincent Bruno Ariganello His father was Joseph Bruno Ariganello who came over in 1915 ish. I have relatives in Toronto most of them are my grandpa's cousins. My great grandpa Joseph had a brother name Bruno who moved to Toronto in the early 1900's. Bruno's kids are my grandfathers cousin's.
When I took a trip over to the Italian Navy they said they never heard of my last name and it was very uncommon. When I told them it was from Sera San Bruno they said not to many people go there and the city is a very family oreinted place run by the Ndrangheta. Not sure if this is true since I have never been there.
We are a very small family with only a few hundred in the US with that last name. Most of us can be found in the Detroit or Toronto area. If there is any from other areas they usally have moved from these locations. If you are related email me and we can chat. I am moving to NY in 3 weeks around the Brooklyn Queens area

Comments:My daughter is graduating from college this May and heading for Italy. I also went after my own graduation many years ago, carrying a wedding invitation in Italian with the name of a family and town to look for. I couldn't even find the name of the town on any maps and, traveling with little money, gave up. Now the old folks are all gone but we are hoping to find some distant relatives on my grandmother's side-Sprovieri-(no one seemed to keep up much with my grandfather's relatives- Catalano). My first online searching led me to stumble on to a short series of postings from a relative in Australia whom I haven't seen in 35 years. So I feel that we'll be lucky in our search.

Now I am going to your site. Most of the sites (Ancestry.com for example) are expensive and I cannot afford to pay them.

Comments:Hi,
I'm an italian living and working in Los Angeles. I just started collecting info on my family and will start digging papers on my next trip to Italy in december.
I liked your web site... lots of stuff and useful info...!
Only note: in your italian translations there are quite a few mistakes, both in the words section and in the letters.

ciao !

Comments:For the person looking for Bozzelli's; there seem to be quite a few in the US and in the suburbs of Toronto, Canada, in a town called Mississauga. I am in the Chicago area.

My grandfather's name was James Frank Bozzelli (Domenic Francis Bozzelli I think was his real name), was from St. Louis, and was born around 1911. I believe that he was from Calabria and came into the US from South America and not Ellis Island. He did have siblings, although I am not sure exactly who they were.

He was married to Georgia Opal (Denusopoulos(sp?)) and they had 3 children: James Jr. (my dad), Sandra, and Cynthia. James Jr. had 4 children: Jodi Ann Bozzelli, Joy Lynn Bozzelli, Janis Audrey Bozzelli, and Jeff James Bozzelli. Sandra married Daniel Bator and they had 4 children: Steven, Laura, Jennifer, and Daniel Jr. Cynthia has been married several times but never had any children. Jeff Bozzelli has two sons: Jason and Justin. Jason has a daughter: Brianna.

Hope this helps.

Comments:Looking for info on the following people:

Agnese Avello (b. 1843) married Nicholas Guadagni. I believe they were from Florence. Nicholas was magistrate to the king but lost all his money gambling. I know of 2 daughters one was Judith. Judith went to work in a high fashion store in Naples as a millner to help support the family.

Judith came to Brooklyn in 1906. The ship's log states Agnese came at the same time but we think this might have been the sister posing as Agnese b/c 2 women wouldn't have been allowed to travel alone.

Judith (b.1874) married Anthony DiMaio (b. July 2, 1886) who was from Naples and supposedly on the same ship. Anthony’s parents were Alphonse DiMaio and Antoinette Ruzzo. Anthony was a barber in the Waldorf Astoria in NY and then a real estate agent.

Judith's sister married and had a daughter named Tess who married a Valenti and they had a daughter named Henrietta who married and divorced Joe Torre's son.

Venditto children:

Tommaso Di Domenico Venditto was born 9/16/1864 in Marcone, Italy
Domenicantonio Venditto was born 9/13/1869 in Marcone, Italy.
Filomena Venditto was born 4/24/1855 in Marcone, Italy
Pasquale Venditto was born 4/1/1873 in Italy. He died 5/27/1877 in Italy.

Tommaso Di Domenico Venditto and Maria Teresa Pellegrino Prozzo had the following children:

Guiseppa Petronilla Venditto was born 6/29/1885 in Italy. She died 4/8/1925 in 508 Cortland St, Bronx, NY.
Domenico Venditto was born 12/25/1887 in Italy. He died 1/1/1889 in Italy.
Domenico Pasqualine Venditto was born 9/5/1890 in Italy. He died 7/25/1892 in Italy.

Guiseppa came to the Bronx, NY and married Nicholas DeLapo.

Looking for info on Salvatore Ambrosino and his wife Maria Allocca.

They came from Naples to Brooklyn, NY in 1898.

Salvatore's parents were Michael Ambrosino and Concetta who died in childbirth. His 2nd wife was Carmela Franzese. Salvatore had many brothers including Erasmus Ambrosino who also came to Brooklyn.

Maria's parents were Joseph Allocca and Catherine Alfieri. Maria had 18 brothers

Gavino Bellucci came to Brooklyn, NY in 1901 staying with his daughter Agnese at 302 Union Ave. His wife Filomena Montano and children Pasquale, Elvira and Guiseppe came in 1906 to join him at 240 Union Ave.
My gr-gr-grandmother was on the same ship as the wife and children and listed Gavino as who she would be staying with. I am trying to find out how he knew my family and if he is related to us.

Comments:My gg-gf was John Augustine Bacigalupo, b 1811 in Carasco, Genoa, Liguria, Italy. He md Angelina Longinotti of nearby Prato Sopralacroce and they had 3 sons, James Augustine (Gus), John Battiste, and Joseph. Angelina died and in 1841 John left his sons with his sister, Rosa (Rosie) Crovo and came to USA, to Augusta, GA, where he md Amanda Weaver in 1847. Several children were born in GA, then the family moved to Nashville, TN., ca 1860 purchased land in Donelson, TN (Davidson Co.), several more children were born there.

The three sons came from Italy in 1852, Gus settled in Davidson Co., TN, John B. in Cincinnati, Ohio and Joseph disappeared and was never heard from again by the family.

John Augustines's father's name might have been Peter - I do not know his mother's name. He had brothers Vincent (res Baltimore, MD), Dominic (res Richmond, VA), and Joseph (res NY, d in Boston, Mass), and the sister, Rosie (Rosa) Crovo, who res in KY near Cincinnati I believe. I don't know whether John's siblings came over with him or if they came with his sons.

I would like to exchange info on this family - would love to hear from anyone who knows anything about any of these people.
