Hi, I’m new to this site so I am still trying to find my way around!
I have now been researching my family for over 14 years however I still keep coming up with the same old stumbling block which is I do not know where my ancestors originally came from In Italy.

Gerald was never married
Philmania marries twice first marriage was Norman Cruse second not sure.
The only Antonio that I can find who was born in Italy in 1859/60 was in Modena Serramazzoni . But this does not fit as any of the first names do not match within our family I have not been able to find when or how he moved to the uk or any trace of him before 1883 the only thing I did find was in 1851 entry to uk fro France were 2 Mazzone’s can not make out the first names and no age given why this stood out was because there was another passenger on board with the name Cascarani which was the name of a given witness to their marriage in 1883 however I know the year is way to early to be Antonio. I have also relentlessly researched the name Alexanda Cascarini but with no luck at all. I did however many many years find entry for an Antonio age 12 in 1871 who was I think Marcho or Dimarco and he was the Nephew this was on a 1771 sensus but on board a vessal I will try and search for this again and update you all.
Oh dear I really do pray some one can help or guide me to what I can do next.
Many many thanks just for taking the time to read.

Hi Jacky -

At this point I think you have a couple of options. You can try searching through the Family Search site. They have records from Naples and maybe you can find their birth acts. Since you have so many names and variations of surnames you could possible be able to pick out who they are . You might have another clue - Looks like Rocco was named after Francesca's father so I would look for Antonio's father's to name to possible be Giuseppe since the first son is named that - they may have followed a naming tradition .

You might want to write away to Naples Town Hall - in Italian- and request copies of the births but I think you should try family search first since Naples is the place listed for birth and it's possible they were born in a town NEAR Naples.
