The Children of Vito Luigi Civitano and Angelina Marvulli

The children of Vito Luigi and Angelina…they truly are responsible for our Civitano families here in the states. I have written in depth about this patriarchal family already but I’m feeling a complete listing of the children is in order. Because of them, our family name continues. Our branch – no more males to carry on the name after my generation is gone…it’s a sadly odd feeling to think about that so ~ Grazie ~ Vito and Angelina ~ this is for you

Please help me share their story – search those photo albums, talk to those who may remember and take note of their stories. We would love a photo of Vito Luigi and Angelina Civitano – that’s on our ‘we can dream list!’ If you find something you would like to share please contact myself or Peter Marino.  In my next post I will talk about the Marvulli family of Grumo.

  1. I am not sure if this is their wedding photo perhaps attending a wedding that she is a matron of honor but I agree it most certainly was a very special occasion. I love her dress! Hoping sooner than later for photo’s to surface – can hardly wait to share them 🙂


  2. NW Painted Lady keeps out-doing herself. Where ever did you get these pics? These are my recent ancestors and continue to be surprised…..


  3. Thank you Joe ~ These 2 posted were from Peter. He shared them quite a few years back. I actually had the one of Rosina (Rosa) and Frank colorized. I will post them…they actually are quite lovely.


  4. It is so sad to see the end of a surname, especially one that produced a bit of a “dynasty.” Wonderful photos. This is a tangent, but my cousins’ dad was Italian and I ended up with some photos of their Italian (immigrant) grandparents. I probably only met the grandparents when I was a baby and toddler, but I love looking at them and so glad I have my copies! I hope somebody comes through with the photo!
