I am just starting to do some research and found your blog. My grandmother was Philomena Cefalo (Miazga). Her parents were Carmine and Emilia Cefalo. I know that they were from outside of Naples. I wanted to know if I'm on the right track. I found Emilia Cefalo (http://tlngenealogy.blogspot.com/2010/02/about-blog.html) born in 1879. Thanks for such a thorough and interesting blog.
Below is the birth act and pedigree chart of Emila Cefalo. She was born on 5 April 1879 at 3:00 pm in the family home on Contrada Grifi to Generoso Cefalo and Maria Grazia Bevilacqua.
Emilia had five full siblings - Maria Letizia (1876), Fiore (abt. 1882), Albino (1885), Maria Laura (1888) and Nicolo (abt. 1891), and one half-sister, Maria Giulietta Bevilacqua (1872). Maria Giulietta was the only child of Maria Grazia Bevilacqua's first marriage to Ciriaco Pasquale Bevilacqua.
I'm not showing a marriage act for Emilia, but it's likely she was married after 1899 - the cut off date for most of my records. Carmine was one of the most popular male names in Torre, so I have several of them in Emilia's age bracket (actually about 15 or so) ... but with a little work we can probably narrow down the possibilities.
Are we on the right track?
