#1: Barletta de San Nicola Arcella Author: sedafatima, Posted: Thu Jan 01, 2009 8:06 pm ----
To all the world. Circa 1860, don Raffaele Barletta D'amico went to Añasco, Puerto Rico. Here he married donna Presentación (Tontón) Paz, and raised a family. Some of his children were Constantino, Rafael, Ana María, América and Sara, all last named Barletta Paz.
Circa 1900 he brought the sons of Filomena Barletta D'amico and Giuseppe Barletta, his sister and his brother in law, to Puerto Rico. Their names were: Vincenzo (Vicente), Antonio, Amadeo and Rafael Barletta Barletta.
Vicente Barletta was my grandfather. Amadeo went on to Argentina, Cuba and the Dominican Republic. Antonio went to the Dominican Republic and Rafael went first to Boston, and then returned to Puerto Rico. We want to know whether there are Barlettas left in San Nicolla Arcella and how to get information about our ascendants there. Happy New Year.

Welcome to Gente! I did a quick check on the Italian White pages and only found this:
Scuola Materna Filomena Barletta Figlie Di Nostra
87020 San Nicola Arcella (CS) - Via Nazionale, 13
It looks like a school to me.
Most Barletta's from Cosenza Province seem to have lived in ACQUAFORMOSA historically. There were a number in BELVEDERE MARITTIMO, AIETA, ALBIDONA and smaller numbers of this surname scattered throughout the province. Cosenza Province has begun to put their civil records online. Although they do not have much up yet, there were no Barletta's in the records put up yet from San Nicola Arcella. The time frame of the early 1800's is up now.
You can access the provinces records here
A second search of the Italian White Pages showed many Barlatta's currently living in many towns in the Province of Cosenza.

Is anyone else having trouble accessing the Cosenza records site??
The address Cathy posted above is the same as the one I have bookmarked but I keep getting an error message.
