Welcome to our forum. Feel free to post a message.
I'm not sure if this is the right place to be asking this but maybe someone can point me in the right direction. My Great Grand Uncle was Rev. Vincenzo Sorrentino. I have recently started working on my genealogy and would like to find church records about my family (Aquavella and Sorrentino) from his time there forward. I would be interested in anything to do with him as well. I have found a few articles online and pictures of the church. If anyone can tell me who I might contact in regards to records, etc. I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance for any help!
There was a Dr. Aquavella that lived in the area.He owned several buildings and his wife name was Loretta
They were my dad's parents. He passed away in 1963 and she followed in 2004. Unfortunately my father passed away before I started looking into this. Thanks for your response!
I remember they had a son who was an eye specialist that lived in Texas.They also owned a beautiful home in Northport that I visted several times.
Lots of luck trying to get any information except directly from interested ex parishoners of OLL.
I have tried to get OLL school records for me and my sister out of the Diocese. They didn't have the courtesy to reply. That was two years ago. What's that all about?????
Hi.......All records from Loreto are at Our Lady of presentation don't have phone number ask for Fr.Ed Mason you can tell him I gave you this information
Victor. Good information. Thanks. Will resume search.
I spoke with someone at the Diocese of Brooklyn, and they have the records for Our Lady of Loretto Church.
