hi, my dad was Guido who passed away in 2009,his parents who i never knew were Giovanni and Elizabeth nee Hanlon
My great-grandmother was a Capaldi. Her father was Ferdinando Capaldi, born in 1819 a few kilometers from Cassino. Ferdinando was married to Agostina Coia, who was born in Filignano in abt 1820. Agostina's parents, I think, were Valenzio Coia and Lucia Capaldi. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if there might be any with my ancestors. I do not have anything on Ferdinando's parents.
Hello, I have been researching my Capaldi's back to Cassino. Majority spellings on records is Capaldo, but when i got back as far as 1828, i found the spelling was Capalto. I have lots of information on Capaldi's from Cassino, and if anyone is interested please contact me on email@example.com As for Anthony Peter Capaldi (above) please contact me on your Grandfather as i have some news!
Stuart, I'm very pleased with your anwers to my question. Now I know where I can start my investigations in Italy. It is strange that only after 20 years of genealogical work I found out that the "Cabalt's" originally were Capaldi's. I found that a few days ago in a English publication about Punch and Judy!! As I told, the Cabalts were streetmusicians and puppetplayers who travelled around in the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium. I was not sure about there homeland because the name Cabalt or Kabalt is also an Bohemian name (perhaps with Italian rootes). Now I will try to find out were "Joseph Cabalt" (Giuseppe Capaldi, I think) who stated to be born in Naples around 1767, really was born. By the way, he came to Holland, walking with a group of artists! If you ever find a Giuseppe Capaldi born around 1767, please let me know. And again many thanks for your help. Your website is wonderful and I sure will visit it many times to search for Capaldi's. Greetings, Harry
Hello Harry, I found a Marriage for a Giuseppe Capalto (capaldi) in Cassino for about 1809 to a Rosa Pacitto. Does she sound familiar?
Please note that most Italian immigrants gave their port of departure e;g. Naples. In my research I have identified that the majority of Capaldo and its plural Capaldi come from the following 3 locations:- Cassino, San Michele Picinisco, San Giuseppe Filignano, Selvone I know that the Filignano Capaldi family originally came from Picinisco San Giuseppe one of my ancestors set up in Selvome circa 1800.

Hello, For over 20 years I am searching for the ancestors of Joseph Cabalt (Capaldi) who came to the Neherlands in about 1790.He claimed to be born in Naples. Perhaps someone can help me with that? The Cabalt's were wellknown streetmusicians en puppetplayer for over a century in Holland. Looking around on internet learns that the Capaldi's all around the world are very often musicians or are related to the showbusiness. I'll be very thankful for any hints that can help me to find any ancestors of Joseph (perhaps Guiseppi?). Harry
Harry, Please note my comments below. The Capaldi families have a history of working outside their homeland. My ancestors worked in Germany. Many also worked in Russia, France, Belgium and UK. Jim Capaldi deceased of the group Traffic, ancestors came from San Michele, Cassino. Peter Capaldi, actor, ancestors are from Picinisco, San Giuseppe
Please note I have now gone back to Leonardo Capaldi 1548 The records for the church in Picinisco are very good. Katrina, Michel Vacca can be contacted on www.picinisco.net or you can check my website www.capaldi-clan.com Stuart
