Check with my cousin Gregory Pezza. He has an extensive family tree. I think the Pezza family was related to the Capotosto family in some way not too far back. There are many Capotosto’s in Cranston , RI . He may have traced it. Greg is on this group. And actually, it’s his father’s birthday today. Joseph Pezza, 87 years old. Happy Birthday, Uncle Joe!!

I checked my Iacueo tree and I don't have any Capotosto connections in there, but has anyone recommended the LDS microfilms to you? These are microfilms of birth, death, marriage and other records that are kept by the Mormon church and are available to the general public. All you need to do is visit a Mormon church in your area that participates in its Family Search program and for a nominal cost you can rent these microfilms, for viewing on their premises on their microfilm machines. At least that's the way it was 4 years ago when I did most of my research.
The microfilms of Itri are extremely rich with information, and if you want to trace your roots back from the present to the Catasto era they are probably indispensable. There are 26 microfilm rolls covering Itri (at least as of 4 years ago), and it's a tedious process, but the rewards are priceless. I can tell you for a fact that you will find many Capotostos in there, as I remember seeing the name often during my research.
I also have a copy of the Catasto, and I am also interested in having it translated, I just haven't had the time to do it to-date. If you find someone that can do it, please let me know if you are interested in sharing the cost of the translation.
Otherwise, good luck with your research.

As a member of ancestry.com I have uncovered more than I ever expected on the history and lineage of the Capotosto name. It gave me many answers but also created many questions, and I sincerely anticipate that some of the members of this group can be of assistance.

I can't seem to link them up to my family tree as of yet. But I believe the answer is out there and one day I will hopefully find it.
