I'm doing research on my grandmother, about whom I have VERY little information. Her name was Rosaria Aurigemma. She was born in Italy between 1882-1884. She came to the US before 1904 and married Beniamino Vitale in Newark, NJ. She had a brother named Giovanni. For her family I can find no entry record, no census records, although I have plenty of data on her US life. Someone suggested that the name may have been collapsed to Auriemma, and hey, I'm desperate, so I thought I'd post here. If anyone believes they may have information, please feel free to post or email me directly.
Thanks... Toni

Hello, my name is Jerry Aurigemma. My Father was Andrew F. Aurigemma. He was married t Santa Maria Corriere. He was the son of Generoso Aurigemma who came from Naples in the early 1900's. He was married to Christina Rupetti who was born in the United States. Not sure if we are related. There are several Aurigemmas out there and most of us are related.

Let me know what you think?

Surnames: Aurigemma
My name is Christopher Michael Aurigemma (20). I have two brothers Erik (16) and Sean (14). My father's name is Peter (47) and his father was Peter as well (born 1928, died 1993) married to Dolores Ruggeri. Peter's father, Anthony was married to Pauline Mangiamiele. Anthony's father was Vincent or Vincenzo.

I am searching for anyone who may be related to us. I have received a few phone calls recently from other Aurigemma's searching for the same, as it seems rather odd that there are so many surfacing Auriemmas and Aurigemmas.

What relationship, if any, do the Auriemmas and Aurigemmas have? I know that my name, Aurigemma, comes from Naples and that all of the above grew up in the Bronx, Yonkers area of New York.

Anyone that has any knowlege about the AuriGemma name please contact me.

Christopher:
Have you any idea when your ancestors came over from Italy and/or where specifically they came from? I've determined that many Aurigemmas came from Monteforte and Altavilla. I've been digging through the Monteforte birth records and am about to embark on the Altavilla records.

Dear Christopher:

My name is Generoso (Jerry) A. Aurigemma (59). I was born in the Bronx, New York City. My Father was Andrew F. Aurigemma born July 10, 1921 (d) May 28, 1979. He was married to Santa Corriere, born August 6, 1922 (d) April 30, 1994. My father was the son of Generoso Aurigemma who came from Naples in the early 1900's. Generoso had seven brothers and one sister. They were born in Monteforte, Italy. Generoso was born on May 14, 1890 and died on June 2, 1939. Generoso and three of his brothers came to the USA in the early 1900's and settled in the Bronx where he eventually met and married Christina Tomassi on April 25, 1915. They had five children, Emily, Joseph, Martin, Andrew and Florence. Florence the youngest is the only one living today. Her name is Florence (Chickie) Falcone and she lives in Valhalla, N.Y. Joseph, my father's older brother had three sons, Joseph, Martin and Gary. Gary still lives in the New York area. Marty lives in Florida and Joseph live in the Carolinas. Florence has two sons and a daughter, Michael, Karen and Mark. They all live in the New York area. Emily Aurigemma Simone had a daughter, Judith and a son, Nicholas. Judith lives in South Jersey and Nicholas is in Indiana. Martin had one daughter, Regina, with his first wife and two other children with a second wife. I am not sure of their names as we did not keep in touch. They live in the New York area.

I believe one of my grandfather's brothers settled in Marlboro, New York. There are several Aurigemmas that live there today. The one sister came to Canada and settled there around 1980.

For your information, I live in Hoffman Estates, IL, just outside of Chicago. We moved here from New Jersey in 1978. I am married to Phyllis (Benincaso) Aurigemma. I have two sons Andrew(33) and Gerald Scott(30).

I hope this is of some help and if you find out more information or I can be of more help please keep in touch with me.

Best Regards and Happy Thanksgiving,

Jerry A. Aurigemma

Hi Jerry,
I've been digging through the Monteforte films, specifically from 1880 through 1888. I was wondering if you know the names of your grandfather's (Generoso's) older brothers. Could they be Martino, Antonio, Domenico, and Vincenzo? These are children of Andrea Aurigemma and Speranza Scibelli. I don't think we're related necessarily, but I kept a record of each Aurigemma whose birth certificate I found in those years. You may already have all of this information.

Hello Christopher,
Our name Arrigenna was changed from Aurigemma. My father Anthony was in the Phillipines near the end of WWI with a Peter Aurigemma. They met and thought they were related but neither followed up on this.
My father was born in 1927, his father in Monteforte, Irpino, Italy,came to US in 1908, all settled near Rochester, NY.
Any chance this was your grandfather. We are travelling to Monteforte in May 2005. Let's share our info.
Thanks Kathy

Do you mean they were in the Philippines at the end of WWII? If so, we are definitely on the same page!

My grandfather, Peter, was in the Philippines at the end of WWII. I never knew that he met anyone with the name Arrigemma as you describe, but I don’t doubt it.

Unfortunately, my grandfather died 11 years ago, but my grandmother survives him and is in great condition (as in- she is VERY interested in learning more information)

As a matter of fact, I was in Sacks 5th Avenue purchasing a necklace last Christmas. When I took off the necklace I was wearing with my grandfather's WWII Dog Tags, the woman at the counter (a 40 something Philippine woman) asked me if my grandfather was in the Philippines during WWII. She recognized the name, though she could be certain, as one of the soldiers that would bring her and her friends American candy each week. My grandmother confirmed this story, that my grandfather did tell her that he did that, but I have never been able to find that saleswoman. I go to Sacks every other week to see if she’s there so we can talk more. If I ever get in touch with her, I will let you know. Just thought that was interesting!

In any event, my grandfather was born in February of 1928, so they would be the same age and is from Monteforte.

Why don’t you send me a direct email at cma245@nyu.edu so we can keep a correspondence? I am very excited.
