This site is dedicated to the families of the small town of Baselice, in the province of Benevento, in the region of Campania, Italy. Baselice is a hilly town, a bit hard to get to, but when I finally made it there in 2005, I felt a strong connection to my grandfather, Adamo Leone, and all of his roots. I’ve devoted a few years to documenting the family relationships of the town by viewing the microfilmed documents provided by the Mormon Church.
I’d like to invite all Baselice residents and descendants to use this site as a meeting place and reference library. In a town of approximately 2,000 people, where families have remained in place for dozens of generations, everyone is related somehow.
