Find family roots of Billotti/Bellotti

Posted by Holly Schultz on October 21, 2006 at 22:59:22:

I am looking for information on one of my family lines with the last name of Billotti (Billotte/Bellotti) and I am running into nothing but dead ends. I have been told that they came from the Naples or Basilicata area and there is no more information to be found in the US because the parents died and the kids were placed on an orphan train and divided up amongst 3 different families. They were so distraught at the events that they never talked about it and now the family is trying to find our roots for genealogy purposes. If you have specific information on Giusseppi Billotti/Bellotti, Catherina Breveta or Lacreta and their children Pasquale, Vincenzo, Rosa and Anna I would be very appreciative. I was told they had 1st cousins in New York when they arrived by the name of Pascasello or Posticelli or Pascucello, etc. Please contact me if you can piece the mystery together:)
