Origin of Nigro family

Posted by D. P. Miller on March 27, 2008 at 15:30:34:

Michele Angelo Nigro, b. around 1887, arrived in the US around 1905. Settled in Berkeley Heights area of New Jersey. Son Michael Angelo Nigro, born around 1900. Related lines are Anastasia and Panetta.

If anyone has a connection to this family, please let me know. I'm having trouble sorting them out because of lack of first names. Thanks!

Update from Forums' Editor

Anastasia appears with multiple phone listings in Rionero, Melfi, Ripacandida; Panetta in Sant'Arcangelo, Melfi, Roccanova. Nigro is more common, and of course all surname appear in the province capital Potenza.
  • *possible* Immigration manifest [Roll 803, vol 1817-1819, 29 Nov 1906] Nigro Michele Arcangelo (spelling Micheli Oreaugelo) from Rionero, 21 - directed to uncle Gerardo Mollica
