Help find my family

Postby TheLadyRides » 08 Feb 2009, 21:21

I am trying to help an acquaintance find her family, or any available information about them, in Benevento. Her family name is Scinto (or Shento)/ Mainiero, from Castelfranc, Miscano, Benevento. Can you help her? The Benevento web site is not operable. Thank you for anything you can do. Her e-mail name is lin2169@cox.net.

Hi,
here below is the link for the White pages. Write the surname you are looking for and note that "Shento" is not the correct spelling while Scinto and Mainiero are correct. The correct name for the town is Castelfranco In Miscano.

Good luck!

Thank you all so much! I have forwarded info to Linda, and I hope it helps. Her major problem will be that she speaks no Italian, but I think she'll be able to contact someone who speaks English. Thanks to all of you!
