Regarding the Maiuolo's, my great-grandmother had a brother Francesco who was a priest/bishop/monsiegnor at various points, even opening an orphanage for boys in 1953-4 called Casa di Carita or S. Tarcisio (both names are on a card I have). The orphanage was in Nicastro somewhere though I don't have a more specific locations. I haven't been able to find info on the web about the orphange if it still exists so nothing more really on him to report to help.
Again, thank you to all in this community for the wonderful assistance, generosity, and breadth of info.

OMG! My Aunt has always told me about the Bishop in Nicastro who opened an orphanage! My aunt (actually my dad's cousin) told me he was a "big shot" in the archdiocese. I think she told me he was her mom's (and my grandmother's) cousin. She wrote him frequently until her death. I have looked for him but never found him. I have to find your Maiuolo's!! I would love to see the cards. Can you email them to me? My email is cathy.napolitan @ gmail. com (no spaces)

Crazy small world! When I go into school tomorrow I'll scan some of the pic's and the card I have of the orphanage to send to you. I'll also pass word onto my father's cousin who's been serving as the Maiuolo family genealogist in case she has more info that can clarify info for the two of you.

Again, this is so crazy to me that there's so much info on the Pileggi's; I never would have thought a simple name change to Peledge would have thrown me off for so long.

I'll be in touch soon.

Looks like Antonio had another sister Caterina Pileggi who married Paolo Stagliano.

Cathy's 1910 census find:
1910 Census of Carlo, Annie & Antonio
Note grandson Michele Stagliano

Antonio's 1900 manifest, travelling with brother in law Paolo Stagliano, lines 25 and 26

1909 manifest for Michele Stagliano, line 6
Leaves mother Caterina in Cortale
Destination Massachusetts to join father Paolo Stagliano

I would really appreciate that. Feel free to give your dad's cousin my email too. I would love to compare notes. I have my Maiuolo's back several more generations and I have an idea where your Maiuolo great grandmother fits in but I need more information to prove it.

Biff: The 1910 census looks somewhat like "Michael" and "grandson" as relation, not "Michele." Chance of misspelling on immigration manifest? Though the Caterina find adds a new twist. Thanks for picking up on that.

I can't quite decipher what the Salvatore person's first name is though it seems that person lived with them though un-related to Carlo.

Cathy: I'll make my copies tomorrow and hopefully have my father's cousin's e-mail along with them.

Thanks, guys!

Cathy,

I've scanned the images but am having trouble forwarding from school. I'll send them later.

I did note on a couple pictures a few more bits of data:
Francesco Maiuolo died Feb. 16, 1969 and is buried at the site of the orphanage in Nicastro.

The last name wasn't noted but I assume it's Maiuolo; on one of the pictures it circled and labeled "Zia Angelina", "Zia Maria", and "Zio Micola", perhaps siblings of Domenica and Francesco. The picture's taken with priests, hence my assumption they're Maiuolo's.

Don't know if this is the info you need to help fill in some blanks, but I'll keep you posted as I get more.

Jay,
My family from Cortale never used the phrase "Zia". The local dialect for aunt was zitzi (I have no idea how to spell that - I am spelling it phonetically). My dad's cousins (the Maiuolo's) did not even know what zia meant when I used the term zia. My dad's family did (his father was from Cosenza Province so I assume they knew it from him). BTW my family "Americanized" the name to Maiola. The name in Cortale is actually pronounced May-woo-low. Thank you, I really appreciate the pictures. If your great grandmother was the sister of the Bishop, I know our families were tied closely together at one time. My great aunt sent money to that Bishop for the orphanage several times a year and sent him lengthy letters according to her daughter. They remained close (through letters) until her death.

Cathy,
The "zia/zio" use sounds like whoever wrote on the pic's must have learned Italian more formerly. My buddy's family also uses zitzi so I'm sure the zia must just be more formal rather than the dialect of the region.

I also wanted to update you that I contacted my dad's cousin. I'll let you know if she gets back to me unless you hear from her first. Out of respect to her, I asked her permission to share the family photos, but I don't see why she'd have any issue.

Regardless, thanks again for all the help. Hopefully some more info from her will tie some loose knots and I look forward to any other directions you can give about moving further backward with Pileggi's.

Take care,
Jay

My scanned image files are too big--what's the secret to smaller files?

Big is good...I like big images. Email them to me as is and I can make them smaller if you would like.

I'm having trouble on the National Archives site verifying his father Carlo's arrival along with his wife and step-son, Frank Carell, in 1895. Regardless, if you know more, I'm happy to read on!
Jay

I found a 1900 census for Carlo, wife Mary and son Frances and it states that Frances was born in Mass. Could this be the Carlo and Frank you're looking for? It also states Carlo arrived in 1896.

Thanks for the 1900 census. It seems Carlo was a "boarder" in the Caterino household. Mary Pileggi is labeled as sister-in-law, but that would mean she married John Caterino. Frank is noted as a nephew-in-law, so it's somewhat confusing, but the fruit dealer element seems constant and it seems Carlo may have branched off from the Caterino business as Carlo is listed as salesman whereas by the 1910 census he's the fruit dealer with his sons as salesman.

Thank you for the info!

Hello All,

I just jioned the site on the suggestion of JPeledge. My father was John Peledge (pileggi) and my grandparents were Antonio and Dominica Maiuolo. I provided some of the documents used on this search.

I will be looking through the additioanl papers left to me by my Aunt Mary Peledge Ferraro. She was in contact with the bishop Maiuolo, her uncle and had met with him a few times during her trips to Italy. Maiuolo's are still here in Medford, MA so I would be able to contact them for some additioanl background.

I am very wxcited about this source of information about my paternal heritage as i have been given a text of my maternal grandmothers ancestors dating back to the 1500's in Sicilia. It is a true treasure!

Please feel free to contact me directly via email.

Best to All
Angela

Nevermind. Though confusing, their years of marriage are the same and John is listed as single, so your original note must be correct. However, by 1910, Carlo's name has changed to Peledge, his wife's name is Annie and the marriage years of that marriage is listed as 14. All the other data seems to make sense, but I'm wondering why there are several glitches---lack of English spoken???

Hey Angela,

You'll find this site pretty impressive! In the week or so I've been on, I've found out my grandfather's birth name was Carlo, not Carl, which my father didn't even know, and I've been able to trace records to the actual ship arrivals using this data and ellisisland.org.

Check out the records shared with me in this thread and you'll see how fruitful this has been.

P.S. Thanks for sharing the doc's with me!
