Info on the name Sarro

Postby Paolucco » 07 Mar 2009, 01:20

Hi, I am looking for some info on the surname Sarro. My great grandfather and grandmother came to the US around the time of 1915-1920. There names were Alfredo and Fortuna. My great grandmothers maiden name was Moresco. I think my great grandfather was originally from Calabria and my great grandmother was from Naples. My great grandfather also had a brother who had came to the US in the early 1900's but returned to Italy soon after ,allI know is that his first initial is T. Any info would be great , I saw a preview on the Ancestry site where it shows something about them from the 1920 census report but I haven't subscibed to them just yet.
Thanks

Paolucco, welcome to IG

Here's the image of Alfredo's WWII Draft Reg Card. Shows his birthplace as the town of Cerzeto in Cosenza Province, Calabria.

Thanks a lot Biff , I actually just went onto the website for the town of Cerzeto in Cosenza and the last name Sarro is the 3rd most popular name there.
Would you be able to find anything on the maiden name of my great grandmother which is Fortuna Moresco. I had thought that she came from Naples, any idea of where that name originates.

Thanks a lot Biff , I really appreciate it. Yes the name Maresca is the 2nd most popular surname in Piano Di Sorrento.
Is there any way of going about how to find relatives still in Italy?

Here's a link to the Italian white pages.
http://www.paginebianche.it/index.html

Type in the surname in the cognome section
The town name in the dove section and
then hit the red Cerca button.

You'll get a list of names/addresses/phone numbers for people living in the village. There are 142 Maresca listings in Piano di Sorrento, and 11 for Sarros in Cerzeto.

Here's a sample relative letter from the following link which you can adapt for your purposes.
http://www.anzwers.org/free/italiangen/ ... tters.html

Ciao,
My name is David Zerga.
Il mio nome e' Davide Zerga.

I live in Fresno, California USA.
Abito a Fresno, California STATI UNITI.

My father Davide Zerga, was born in Cicagna and migrated to the USA in 1911.
Mio padre si chiamava David Zerga, e' nato a Cicagna ed emigrato negli Stati Uniti nel 1911.

I am trying to contact my relatives still living in Cicagna.
Vorrei mettermi in contatto con qualche mio parente ancora residente a Cicagna.

I do not know which of the Zergas living in Cicagna are related to me.
Non saprei dire se sono imparentato con qualcuno che porta il cognome Zerga residente a Cicagna.

I am writing to those Zergas with the same given name as my father or grandfather or great grandfather.
Mi rivolgo a chiunque porti il cognome Zerga ed abbia lo stesso nome di battesimo di mio padre o di mio nonno o bisnonno.

My father David Zerga, was born on December 31, 1888.
Mio padre, David Zerga e' nato il 31 dicembre 1888.

My grandfather, Victorio Eugenio Zerga, was born circa 1868 in Cicagna.
Mio nonno, Victorio Eugenio Zerga, e' nato nel 1868 (circa) a Cicagna.

My great-grandfather, Antonio Zerga, was born about 1840 in Coreglia Ligure'.
Mio bisnonno, Antonio Zerga, e' nato all'incirca nel 1840 a Coreglia Ligure'.

My grandmother was Teresa Nicoletta Solari, and she was also born in Cicagna.
Mia nonna si chiamava Teresa Nicoletta Solari, anche lei nata a Cicagna.

My great grandmothers were
Le mie bisnonne si chiamavano

If you think we may be related I would be very grateful to receive a letter from you.
Qualora Lei ritenga che possiamo essere imparentati, Le sarei grato se vorra rispondere a questa lettera.

If we are not related but you know of a Zerga that may be related to me please give this letter to them.
Nel caso, invece, che fosse dell'avviso che non fossimo imparentati ma dovesse conoscere qualcuno che si chiama Zerga che possa essere imparentato con me Le sarei grato se vorra' consegnare questa lettera a quella persona.

I have enclosed a self addressed envelope.
Assieme a questa lettera trovera' una busta gia' completata con il mio indirizzo.

Voglia gradire i miei sinceri saluti.
Accept my sincere greetings.

David E. Zerga


Correct format for addressing the outer envelope:
Giovanni Epifano--name of recipient
Via Municipio, 4--street name and house number
88040 San Mango d'Aquino (CZ)--cap like our zip code/town name/province abbreviation
ITALY

When you have a draft letter composed, post in the Translation section and someone will help polish/correct it.

I'm going to have to try to do that Biff. I was talking to my father today and he had found my great grandfathers death certificate , which is Alfredo , the one you got me a lot of info on. Alfredo's fathers's name was Francesco Sarro and the mothers name he couldn't make out, it was something like Maria... Garria...... he couldn't read the rest. All I know is they had at least two sons , Alfredo and Giuseppe. Is there any way of looking up the marriage records online for weddings in Italy in the 1800's. I know its a long shot. I would assume that they were married somewhere in the Cosenza area of Calabria , possibly in the town of Cerzeto.
Thanks

There is the only archives for the province of Cosenza that has records from 1800-1900 not all the records have been put up yet sometimes is better to just put the last name with no town and see what all comes back. you do have to register but its free, and you can change the language to english.
