Capozzolis from Belosguardo

Hi. I "met" some of my Capozzoli cousins on this message board back in 2003, including Michael Anthony, who was just about to be married in December of 2003 and was planning to visit our family's ancestral village, Belosguardo, on his honeymoon. When I tried to contact him later, I was unable to get through; maybe his email address had changed. In the meantime, my email address also changed and I got a new computer and did not transfer my old address book to the new computer. So, I would like to re-establish contact with him and meet any other cousins who are related to me. I am especially interested in anyone who has been to Belosguardo and would not mind emailing me some photos of the town. My grandfather was Michael Capozzoli and my grandmother was Maria Valitutti. Thanks for any help.

Hi, My name is Andrea Capozzoli and my grandfather was Anthony Capozzoli from Pittsburgh. I think we are 2nd cousins. I thought this was cool when I did a search on our name.

Hi, Andrea.

My niece is also named Andrea. Is your grandfather Anthony T. Capozzoli, 1909-1989, who married Mary Ladeda? (Or something like that--I was never sure of the spelling!) Anthony's children are named Robert, Ronny, Michael William and Marianne, and Robert has two children, Anthony Robert and Andrea Joan--is that you? Is your mom named Susan?

This is pretty exciting. I would love to get birth dates for your brother and you, and your mom, also your uncles and aunt. What was your mother's maiden name? Any information you can send me would be appreciated.

Do you live in Pittsburgh? I have lived all my life in New Jersey and visited Pittsburgh only once, when I was about three, although my two brothers have gone back, once when our Uncle Louie died. I was born in 1946, my brother Mike in 1947 and my brother Pete in 1948. (We're old!)

Hoping to hear from you!
Mary

Dear Mary: I'm Susan Capozzoli, wife of Robert who is the son of Anthony Thomas Capozzoli and Mary Ladeda Capozzoli. You've heard from our two children, Anthony and Andrea. Bob and I still live in Pittsburgh. Anthony has two children, Vanessa Marie (13) and Anthony, Jr. (3-1/2). Bob's brother, Michael still lives in Pittsurgh as does his son Michael and his wife Lisa and two sons William and Robert; another son on the way. Michael's other son, Robert, lives in Chalfont near Philadelphia and has two daughters, Sidne and Sarah. Bob's sister, Marianne Buriak, lives in Houston and his brother Ron lives in Chicago. A lot of names for you; all descendents of your dad's brother Anthony (Cappy). I met your father when he made a trip to Pittsburgh. I can't recall the occasion, but I remember meeting him. I think it's great that you try to gather all this family information and stay in touch with your relatives. Who knows, one day we might meet. If I'm correct, I think you're in New Jersey. Andrea is a musician who lives in Boston but frequently performs in New York. Maybe we could meet there some day.

Surnames: Longo, Pepe, Croce, Tesauro, Valitutti, Capazzoli...
My grandparents (Peppino/Giuseppe Longo & Angelina Pepe) were both from Bellosguardo and immigrated to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. My Grandfather aka Joseph Longo was a 1st cousin of the Capozzoli's in Pittsburgh and Washington DC (Mickey, Angelo, Babe...). We owned a food market called Longo's in the East Liberty section of Pittsburgh behind old Pittsburgh Hospital.

Glad to hear from you! I am not sure I understand the connection between us. How was your grandmother Angelina Pepe related to Petronilla (there may be other ways to spell this name) Pepe, who was my great-grandmother? Her husband was Pietrangelo Valitutti, who brought their adult children to America two by two to be married while Petronilla stayed behind in Bellosguardo. My father (Carmen aka C.J. aka"Babe" Capozzoli) spoke often of the Longos but I don't think I remember him saying they were his cousins.

I know that my Dad told us that Louie, Mickey, and Babe (their sister) were his 1st cousins. I need to ask my brothers and cousins about some of these ties. There are some of the Valittutti's who live in FL, I can reach out to them too. There was also a story about 2 Capazzoli brothers who married 2 Valitutti sisters, I think my brother Gene knows about it. Plus, one of my Dad's other 1st cousins (who was also Raffaele Longo) and was from Bellosguardo, his father was Federico Longo (my grandfather's brother) and his mother was Maria Grazia Vallitutti. My Dad had another Aunt (Philomena) who was from Bellosguardo. Her married name was De Finis, but she was also connected to to Longo's, Capazzoli's and Valitutti's. There are several connections here. I also talk to some of the family who are still in Bellosguardo and can see if they know anything.

Hi, I know my family has a De Finis connection also but I don't know how, a distant cousin I think. Maria Valitutti Capozzoli(my father's mother) had many siblings, including a Filomena (the spelling we have) Valitutti but I don't think she is the same as your father's aunt. Certain names seem to be repeated over and over, making things even more complicated. I know you and I are related, I just don't know how, yet! :- )
