Hello, new guy here.
My name is Rick, and I live on Long Island, NY. I have been
researching my family name on my father's side, Iacueo. The Iacueos
originated almost exclusively in Itri, Italy. In the U.S., some
Iacueos settled in Cranston, RI, while others settled in NYC. The
Itri Square monument in Cranston includes the name Iacueo. In NYC,
the Iacueos resided mainly in lower Manhattan in the area around E.
10th Street after immigrating in the early 1900s.
Thanks to the LDS Western Europe Vital Records Index, I have managed
to put together a fairly substantial pedigree chart for the period
between the mid/late 1700s through the mid-1800s. That said, of
course there are also significant holes, particularly for the mid
1800s - early 1900s period as well as for the pre-1760s or so. Aside
from Iacueo, the family names on my chart (with in-laws) include
many familiar Itri surnames:
I have ordered microfilm from my local LDSFHC, but I suspect that I
may not glean too much additional info that has not been already
included in the vital records index.
Has anyone gotten more info from the microfilm vs. the vital records
I am also extremely interested in obtaining copies of both the 1754
and 1809(?) Catasti Onciari for Itri, as well as the pre-1800
baptism records. I would certainly appreciate it if someone with
these records could contact me; obviously I will pay whatever is
reasonable to obtain copies.
I have also become a great fan of the work that Joe Fidaleo has
done; his website is the model that I am working towards.
Finally and most importantly, I am looking forward to conversing
with my fellow Itrani descendents in this group!
