My Grandmother Anna Maria Garramone
immigrated to Denver, Colorado
from Potenza, Italy around 1905
with her parents and siblings.

While looking for her records, I found your site. There are many
Garramones in the Denver area.

they might be! I was 3 when my grandmother died, so I do not have
much information on her family.

I've been researching my husband's family, and I've noticed, in scanning ships lists on the net, that the name can be spelled many ways. My husband's mom spelled it Garamone, (which doesn't come up on most surname searches), I've seen ship lists that spell it Caramone, but the most common (and probably original spelling) is Garramone. (The Caramone spelling is the toughest one, since it won't come up in a Soundex search for Garramone). We're searching for ancestors of Mildred Garamone, married to Carl Carbone in New York. Both were born in New York, in the late 1800's to Italian immigrant familes; since that's all we know, we have a long way to go...

I only know of a Brother Salvatore who is related to my Grandmother Maria Garramone.

Something you might try is posting her name and information on a bulliton board in the Italian city of her birth, or the regional web site. (Hopefully her city of origin is listed on her immigration record.) There are many Garramone's living in Potenza, Italy and they have a web site with a bulliton board to post to.

Lori, how do I reach the Potenza Web Site? My Grandmother, Marie Angela Garramone (mother was Therese Santangelo) came from Potenza, Trivigno.

A Santangelo and a Garramone from Potenza! Thats incredible.

I found one guestbook to leave messages at

I think there is another city cite with a regular bulliten board for locals and guests, I am trying to find that site again. Let me know if anyone from Italy replys.

I am still looking for the original site. I'm seeing a new tourist site, that is not up yet when I try to go there and am hoping they did not take the old site down.

I found another guestbook at (the region where Potenza is). There is also the Vital Records Office at:

Soprintendenza Archivistica Perla Basiicata
Soprintendente, Mario Nenni
Viale Marconi, 104
85100 Potenza, Italia

Tele 097/24868

(I'm not sure how far back their records go, but I was told I might have better luck contacting the church where my grand-mother was baptized. I'm just not sure of which church.)

There is another message board at
Araldis Europe

It is in Italian and English
There are no Garramone's listed yet.
