Galatea always heard that the family had Agropoli
family roots - the only towns mentioned in
The family has been in Cicerale since 1700 (if not earlier). Sivers says "the home in Cicerale, that has always belonged to the Aulisio's, bears the date 1700." Siver's grandmother Leonita, (living in Salerno 2005) "has always said that her father used to say that theirs was an important family." According to family tradition, Elia Aulisio was a pharmacist and was well-off and built the house in Cicerale with the 1700 date at the entrance. If the date refers to the date of the building, the Elia who built it would have lived about a century earlier than the Elia who was Leonita's great grandfather. (If there were two Elias, it is not clear which Elia was the pharmacist.)
Galatea's brother told her he once contacted a distant relative (he can't
recall who, or where) who claimed researching an earlier generation to

Known family members in the
The 1910 census is a good example of the spelling problem - several of our family members were in PA at that time but there is NO Aulisio spelling in the 1910 PA Miracode index. A soundex search for Aulisio and Olisio resulted in names such as Alio, Aulisa, Alessio, Alesso, Allasso, Aulise, Allis, Aliso, Allesse, Alesse, Aleseo, Alulisi, Allose, Alezio, Alessi, Aloiseo, Alici, etc., and Olcse, Olleos, Ollis, Olis, Olies, Olise, Oliaus, Olchch, Olse, Olisse, Olissia, etc. We found our Gennaro under "John Olleos." In the 1920 census, the census lists George Olicl [our Sabato Giorgio Aulisio] and an indexer made things even worse by recording the last letter as a k - ending up with "Olick" in one online census index. A 1930 Census index lists Leo (son of Dominic) as Anhew! Sometimes the names appear as Aulisia or Aulizio, and so on. Aulisio research is also difficult because the Americanized versions of the given name are often used: Giuseppe/Joseph/Joe, Antonio/Anthony/Tony, Elio/Leo, Gennaro/John/Jerry/Gerald, Francesco/Frank.
Today, in the United States, one online 2002 U.S. telephone directory lists 497 Alessio, 106 Aulisio, 81 Allessio, 54 Alessio (no others were checked).

2) GEORGE - came to U. S. about 1898 [OF line]
He has not been located in Ellis Island Database - and it is not known if he is from Cicerale. However, he is included in this list because it is likely he is the relative mentioned by other Aulisios in

That manifest included brothers Antonio and Elia, going to Old Forge, PA, to brother Georgio. (Also a Donato Aulisio, on a different page, going to NY.) ALL of Cicerale.

6) GUISEPPE - arrived U.S. Jan 28, 1905 [OF line]
Giuseppe, 22, of "Cicerate" [assume Cicerale], arrived on ship Napolitan Prince, NY Jan 28, 1905, going to Old Forge, PA, to brothers Georgio and Elia. He is presumed to be the brother of GEORGE b. about 1875 (see above) and the Joseph Aulisio in the 1930 Census Index - in Old Forge, Lackawanna, PA.

There is more information about some of these families in on line database. However, most online database do not include personal details about persons born after 1900 (or after the 1930 census). If you contact us, we'll let you know if we have information about more recent descendants of the lines we are researching. The known Aulisio databases on line are those of:
GKBopp at WorldConnect on RootsWeb (also
accessed by Ancestry.com)
At this time, this database has the most entries; however there are no details for those born after 1900.
In the database, the given names entered are those provided by family members. For example, Angelo Aulisio uses the Americanized versions (Leo instead of Elia), whereas Christine Sobinovsky uses the Italian names (Giuseppe instead of Joseph).
Use the Index, search on Aulisio, or click on A (then on Aulisio). The first person in the Aulisio portion of this database is under the fake name of "Introduction Aulisio" - that will get you to the "top" of the information.

Our group currently uses emails but might want to consider a public list/board so that others can find us and so that our information can be in the list/board archives for future researchers. A "list" sends you emails each time there is a posting (my preference). A board does not send emails - you must remember them check frequently for new posts (although some may have a limited email option). My personal preference is mailing lists, especially RootsWeb lists.

There is no AULISIO surname list on RootsWeb.
