Capriola's of Italy
Hello all you Capriola's out there.
I have been working on my family ancestry for quite some time but have stumbled into a brick wall on this one. My family lines are all from Partinico and Palermo, Sicily that is where the lineage stops. But there are a handful of Capriola's that reside in the Naples area of Italy and about a hundred or so here in the USA. My great grandfather was Bernardo Capriola born in 1868 in Partinico and was married to Rosa Bruno born 1871 also in Partinico. They wed about 1893 and had Salvatore in 1899, Sarina in 1911 and Magdelena ( Elena )in 1914. Salvatore married Francesca Cipolla, Sarina married Peitro Monteleone and Elena married Andrea Di Miceli. Nothing else is known of my great grandfather as to who his parents were. I believe he emigrated to Palermo/Partinico area from Naples. It is rumored that Bernardo and Rosa had several children that died young and that he may have been someone of authority in the military as shown by the photo's of his early years. I am certain there is a connection between the Capriola's in Partinico and Naples.
Ciao for now.....Sal Capriola
