Re: CAPOCCIAMA, born Alvito, Italy

In Reply to: Re: CAPOCCIAMA, born Alvito, Italy by Cristina Capocciama of 1585

Cristina, I was born in Alvito in 1948. My family came to the U.S. in 1953. My father's sister married into the Vincenzo Cappocia family, in Alvito. I am not sure if there is a connection there but Alvito is very small and there are many family name variations and splits example: Brusca/ Brusco. Which is my mother's maiden name.Check to see if this might be the case in your family search.
By the way I still have family in Alvito and have recently visited there with my children. It is a very vibrant little town that is benefiting from young people looking for a break from Rome. Many of the old homes are being refurbished.
Good luck with your search.
