Achille Ruffolo, son of Luigi Ruffolo and Maria Provenzano
- Greetings fellow Maranese--
I just returned from my first viewing of the LDS microfilm of Marano births
(1880-1900). It's enough to make you go blind reading that old European
script--but I found my Dad's birth record--and it turns out he is the child
of Luigi Ruffolo and Maria PROVENZANO, not DeBartolo as I've always
Hopefully I'll get back next week to continue looking for my Uncle Frank
(Francesco) and a sister. Finding out my grandmother was Maria Provenzano
provides the link I've been looking for to connect with the Pietro and Louisa
Ruffolo born to Luigi and Maria.
If anyone needs a look-up, let me know. Though I've only got the microfilm
with the births listed, I also ordered the one with marriages and deaths, so
it should be here within the next couple of weeks.
