Looking for "Calabria" surname in Piaggine

Postby RCalabria » 29 Sep 2009, 03:17

Hi everyone! This is a great site and seems to be a wonderful tool for us all trying to reattach with our ancestors culture and land.

My surname is Calabria. My great grandfather came from Piaggine, I've been told. Several years ago, my father tried to obtain some information regarding our family, but was told that the church in Piaggine was closed due to risk of ruining.

Well, I am planning on travelling in the next weeks to Italy and maybe visit the region. Do you know of any Calabria family members in the region?

Thanks a lot.

I did not locate any in the town of interest, but in the Province:

* in Provincia di Salerno (47)
* montesano sulla marcellana (14)
* casalbuono (14)
* campora (7)

Use this site to search for those who carry your surname:
