how can I get the history of families in Larino, Italy?

+4 votes
I was told the history of my family goes back 1000 years.  I have entered my great grandmother -Maddalena Mercurio-- I- have ship manifests that show her and states her mother's name as Maria Vincenza Puchetti (married Name Mercurio) - she is Mercurio-46.. Her husband, Luigi D'Ambrosio is D'Ambrrisio-40. Other italians entered are: Mercurio-53, Puchetti-3; D'Ambrosio-35, Puchetti-2

My grandfather, Puchetti-2, is related to my Grandmother, D'Ambrisio -35, hergrandmother's brother was his father.  I think.

There is a house in Larino that belonged to my Puchetti ancestors, but I know very little about it other than it has a P on the gate.  My Aunt and cousin saw the house.

I found the birth record for Maria Maddalena D'Ambrisio (Mercurio):

On this website you'll find all civil recistry records for Larino and many other towns, around 1810 to 1900. Most records also contain the adress.

I also have ancestors and relatives in Larino. If you can get more information about the house, maybe I can help. Does your aunt or cousin remembers anything about where the house was? Surroundings, was the house standing alone or attached to another house? Was it in the old or new city? Or maybe even at the countryside? What did they see before or after or next to it?

thank you  isabella.  there is a gate that has the letter "P" on it, for Puchetti

i believe i have a photo of a young man whose last name was caruso..perhaps one of Maddelena s nephews but if you are interested, i will try to find those things.

thanks so much,

Lynn, short  for middle name Madeline, after  Maddalena who called me lena, or lily ( for little lena )
You're welcome.

I don't think there are many old houses with gates in Larino, but the city still is quite big. So I would need further information, as little as possible could be helpful.

It would be awesome to see the photograph of the young Caruso man. I don't have many old photographs of my relatives. If you could find out how you are related to Caruso of Larino, we could for sure find a connection. I have researched all Caruso of Larino and some are related to Mercurio and to Puchetti. But I didn't researched those familys.
I have to enter all those relatives to WikiTree soon.

The name Lily is nice. It is and was very common in Larino to call people with their diminutive name.

the house is in the old part of Larino about two blocks ffom the cathedral on vico levante.  cousin said the house with the gate wasn't the one.   this house is in a narrow alley..  

the record you showed me is my ggrandmother's  and it lists parents as well as  her husband.  thanks for the source!!!!
