Hello suanj!

In doing some checking, it appears that Cirigliano at one time was in the province of Potenza. Is that correct?

Looks like you and I interpreted the manifest the same way.

Un abbraccio,
Biff

Hi biff, one time all commons in Basilicata region was in Potenza province, because Potenza was the ONLY province and capital in same time! Now Cirigliano is in Matera province ... Matera province was created the 2 january 1927 and from this date also Cirigliano becoming a common of new province... best regards, suanj
