Searching for people who may be related to descendants of Raphaele Nutile, born 1820-1837, San Angelo, All Esca, Avellino, Italy.
Married Giuseppina Nargi, date unknown. Seven children, possibly eight. Seven came to the United States, settled in Connecticut.
Especially interested in relatives who may still be in the San Angelo area, Avellino.

Thank you 'Rita' for responding to my post about the Italian roots of the 'Nutile Family' I am sending the information you provided to another 'Nutile' whose roots are in Lapio but who has not posted any queries but is searching.. Without your response, I was slowly coming to the conclusion that no one with that surname in their history was searching for others. I wish that Italians (in Italy) found their way to these boards because I am sure that more of us could 'connect. The same sentiment must be felt by others ...hoping that people on the other side of the oceans would find their way to these boards - even using computerized translations if needed. THANK YOU RITA.

Yeah for Nutile site

Hello Carol and Rita,

I think I may be able to help you out a wee bit. I'm a second generation Nutile and have done only a little bit of family history. My Dad's Dad, Vincenzo, was born in Avellino, Italy and immigrated to the US as a child in the early 1900s to join his Dad and Uncle who settled in Boston. Their names were Giovanni and Guiseppi (John and Joe). I can't remember which one is my great-grandpa, but he married my great-grandma Carmella. Good name! (ever watch the Soprano's?) I can give you exact dates if I dig out my files which are in storage someplace. My Grandpa died in 1977, a year before I was born, so I never got to hear the story from him, but I've been able to scrape pieces together. Grandpa Vince was raised in Boston, married my Grandma and moved to California in 1920. He had three children (Marjorie, Mildred, and Vince -- my Dad). My parents had 7 children -- we're all in California still. My oldest aunt, Margy, died several months ago unfortunately. She was 79 and lived in Seattle. My other aunt, Millie, lives in Ponca City, Oklahoma (population: way too small for my taste). I'll ask her about this as well. Maybe she'll join the listserve and enlighten us all, or help us at least. She's retired now, but busier now than when she was working. I guess that's what happens when you have grandchildren though. She likes them. A lot.

I was working with Bill Nutile several years ago who lived in Maryland at the time. He was retired and had some extra time on his hands. He even went so far as to go the archival library in DC and make a photocopy of the Immigration records which were kept when foreigners stepped of the boat -- he was kind enough to send me a copy of them!!! He has lots and lots of information. Have you contacted him? I'll excavate his email address if not. Haven't talked to him in years. Bill and I discovered one thing though: we pronounce our names differently. I pronounce it (new-til-E). He pronounces it (nootly). How do you two pronounce it?

I know this isn't a big help to you, but I'll dig out those papers in the next few weeks and refresh my memory -- and yours.

Nice to "meet" you.
Linda
Davis, California

Surnames: Nutile
Very pleased to learn that other people within the USA are also connected via this surname. I have finally gathered information about the roots of the branch of which I am a descendant. They were born in the province of Avellino, Italy. From a few others who have contacted me, there seems to be more Nutile's from that particular province than from other parts . Those who have contacted me indicate their roots (Nutile surname ancestors) were found in two towns which are not far from one another (Lapio and Sant Angelo All'Esca,). I am pleased to hear from you. You mentioned a list-serve group. I am unaware of it.. Please post some information. Others connected by this surname in their family tree may be out there and would like to 'meet'. Thank you for replying.

I am a Nutile in the Boston area

Surnames: Nutile
I am about to turn nineteen years old and until I saw this board never even had an interest in finding out about my families roots. My fathers Mother still lives in the boston area, and I know that my father spen his entire childhood living in sommerville near winter hill. I vagually remember my grandfather and have never been told many stories about him. There was one time a couple years ago my father told me about him being mentioned in a book about the relations the mob had with the area they lived in. I guess he was a bookie or something? I am not sure how much I will be able to find out about my roots but I will try to get as much information as I can. My grandmothers name is Gi Gi if that helps at all. Her father just passed away in the last five years. I know I havnt told you much but maybe I can help you make osme kind of link somewhere? don't try to reach me on my email yet, I would have to get your adress and put it into my adress book because all other incoming mail is deleted. But I will check back here daily hoping for a response.

Surnames: Langones of Potenza
My great Grandfather Angelo Langone was the brother of Catherine Nutile. He resided in Woburn, Ma and died in 1960 at age 91. He was the brother of State Rep Joseph Langone. I have their naturalization papers and they state they came to America in 1875 from Marseco Nuove, Potenza Italy. Do you have any further info regarding the Langones. I can not seem to locate them on the ship passenger lists for Boston. Cheryl

Cheryl,
My grandfather and his siblings came from a very small village in Avellino (St. Angelo all Escal). I relied on a standard (fill in the blanks) letter copied (CAREFULLY) from the book titled, ITALIAN RECORDS" published by Ancestry and sent it to the village with a small check. I received the birth dates and names of all the family of which I knew - and discovered two ames of which I knew nothing - one of these was a name which even the remaining children of my grandfather (my autns and uncles - knew nothing. The very best place to search for background information is to check your phone book for the nearest Mormon 'Family History Center'' where microfilms of many Italian village civil records are maintained. If they don't have the film you need, they will order one from Utah - cost is about $4 and is kekpt for you at the center for amny weeks. It is very well worth it. Even if you do not read italian, with a few minutes of basic vocabulary instruction (words for birth, death, father , mother, etc. etc. ) you will be able to read the text - Better still, photocopy the ones where you find a family name and contact a local university's foreign language department to locate a translator. So much for back history.

As far as ship records go, did you know that women traveled under their maiden names sometimes even if married. Was 'Catherine' her married or maiden name. Have you checked the many volumes of books titled 'Italians to America' - 'Irish to America' etc, etc, . They fill many shelves of state libraries - or if you are not sure, ask the librarian of you local library to find out where these are located in your state (Where are you, anyhow?). I found a family member in one of those volumes - with name of ship, and date of arrivel IN NEW YORK). Although your relatives may have focused on Boston area, they may not have arrived there.

I wont' make this any longer until I hear from you since you may already know all of this. But do get back to me so we can share whatever might be useful.

Hi Carol, The Catherine Nutile I am related to was married to Joseph Nutile of Woburn, Massachusetts. Her maiden name was Langone. She was my great grandfathers sister. She and her husband had 13 children. I do not know where Joseph Nutile is from. I have visited the LDS Family History Center many times looking for the other side of the family (Farina) and have found many records. I need to make another trip there to order microfilm from Potenza, Italy to search for the Langone's. I doubt we are related but thanks for writing to me. Happy Holidays! Cheryl

Cheryl,

Whatever you find in your search of the surname 'Nutile" please let me know. I am searching for a missing brother of my grandfather - who never left Italy and I have no records of what happened to him. I need to go back to the LDS microfilms and search again - broader search ind including deaths. Let's keep this message board alive - in case others are 'out there' and would like to feel there are possible connections. How far back (up/down) in the family tree can you trace 'Joseph'. Who knows!. if we go back far enough, we may find a link 3 generations or so back from Joseph(Giuseppe?)

Carol
