The Celentano Family (from the region of Catona, Calabria, Italy) Genealogy Web Page, prepared by Joseph Thomas Celentano, (born in 1940 at San Pedro, California, USA) is continually being modified, updated and corrected. This is only one branch of a limb from the huge Celentano Family tree. Any information that can be contributed will be gratefully appreciated. Most of the information is passed down by word of mouth and is best recollection. Much early info (1800's) comes from original documents. More discriptive family info, such as pictures, will follow as time permits. Read carefully and analyze the below information and if you think there may be a family relationship here (or even if there isn't), please send an E-mail in English to Joe Celentano at JosephCelentano@FrontierNet.net.

NOTE: This web site has been very successful. I have located direct blood relations as a result of other Celentano's finding this web site.This web site has been here since March 1997.

( I have no information prior to early 1800's )

SANTO CELENTANO (my great-grandfather)
born in Catona, Calabria, IT
birth (early 1800'S) ??/??/18??, death (mid to late 1800's) ??/??/18??
Santo Celentano's occupation was a fisherman.
married in Catona, Calabria, IT ??/??/18?? to:

born in Napoli, Compania, IT
birth ??/??/18??, death ??/??/18??
children; Tomaso 1865-1944 (my grandfather), Guiseppi 1871-1948 (or 1951), Pasquale 1880-1951, Raffaele, Carmela, Thresa, Josephine (aka: Bepina).


Pasquale married Carmela Delmastro, Tomaso married Concetta Sciliberto, Guiseppi married Nancy Foti, Raffaelle married Fortunata (?), and Josephine married Joseph Carita. These siblings went to the United States. Sisters Camille Celentano and Theresa Celentano remained in Italy and it is unknown if they ever married.

I have some notes that mention Camille Celentano married and had a child named ANGELO. Angelo's daughter married and moved to Hollywood, California. No further information.

As you can see, it can get complicated, and memories fade with time. I placed this information here with the idea that if someone sees or recognizes their name or maybe their cousins, aunts or uncles name, then we all may be distantly related.

There is no established connection or relation to the Celentano Foods Family in Verona, NJ, nor Adriano Celentano , the Italian singer and actor.

RAFFAELE Celentano Family (revised 1/7/2000)

Santo and Nuziata's other son Raffaele married a woman named Fortunata (last name unknown). I have no further information.

JOSEPHINE Celentano Carita Family (revised 1/7/2000)

Santo and Nuziata's daughter Josephine (aka: Bepina) went to New York and married Joseph Carita. Their children were Nancy, Louise, Thresa, Joseph, Bruno, and Santa. I have no further information.
