John Louis Ferrari, Mary D'Agnese, Jennie D'Agnese

Classification: Query
Surnames: Ferrari, D'Agnese
John Louis Ferrari and Mary D'Agnese were married. Jennie D'Agnese is Mary's mother. That's all I have been able to find out about them. I need help finding out anything about them prior to 1920. They are my great-grandparents on my mother's side and we are both extremely interested in anything we can learn. Possibly where in Italy they are from, their ancestors. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Oh my!
You're very very welcome!
Ancestry is my favorite resource for records.
Their search engine really helps get around spelling errors and mistranscribed records.
Clues from ancestry usually lead to records on other sites.
Often your local library has a subscription to the library edition of that you can use for free.
I'm glad I could help.

Thanks to this post my husband was able to find my great-great grandparents: Domenico and Jennie D'Agnese.

We are considering sending a form letter from to Montemarano.If you have any additional information that would be helpful, please email us at There are fourteen phone numbers for D'Agnese in that city.

Any ideas why Jennie's name is not an Italian spelling?

Grazie Mille!

It could be the Jennie was short for another name. One of her grand-daughters is named "Jeannette", but on one of the census' she is listed as "Jennie." I found this out because I was asking my mom about it and she remembered an Aunt Jeannette...
