Pulcino relatives in Capriglia Irpina
Whew.... after so much research (including my Mom making trips to the vital statistics office in Boston) we finally found the correct name of my Grandparents both from Avellino and would LOVE to contact our relatives, anyone have any idea how we do this? My Grandpa was Benedetto Pulcino who left Italy at the age of 17 on a boat called the Roma from Naples, he left lots of family behind and would LOVE to meet them. Can anyone suggest how I do this?
Update from Forums' Editor
- Immigration manifest [May 11th, 1904]: Pulcino Benedetto, 17 - Avellino is the province, and the village of origin is Capriglia (today Capriglia Irpina)
- The white pages give no Pulcino family in Capriglia. The Irpinia area was struck by a ruinous earthquake on 23 november 1980, and a lot of the population may have moved or relocated.
- Birth record Capriglia Irpina 10 Nov 1886 no. 57 img.22: Pulcino Benedetto Ermelindo, of Carmine 39 and D'Alessandro Maria Giovanna; address contrada Vicolanza 28.
- Suggestion: search the marriages from about 1890 onwards for any Pulcino, to find other children of Carmine that survived and names of their spouses.
