I have written quite a bit about the Civitano family from the town of Grumo Appula, Bari, Italy, but very little about the side of the family from San Gregorio, Caserta, Compania, Italy.
The most common five family names
|There are in San Gregorio Matese||Surname|
We have DeLellis, Fattore, Loffreda in our tree, making it into the top 5. I had been thinking about this side of the family for some time and felt I wanted to change tracks for a while. In fact, I had actually started this post and had something very odd, no coincidental, no perfectly perfect to confirm I am on the right path with my genealogy research at this time. On ancestry – I had a message yesterday that said “Luigi De Lellis was my grandfather” nothing more. I immediately wrote back and am hoping to open a dialog with this person.
Luigi De Lellis was my great grandmother Filomena Maria’s brother.
My father’s mother was Catherine Langellotti (1912 N.Y) one of seven children born to Giuseppe Langellotti (1876) and Filomena De Lellis (1877) both from San Gregorio, both who would make there way to America to begin a new life here with their family.
