Hi there,
I'm not sure if this helps.

http://boards.ancestry.ca/surnames.monterosso/1/mb.ashx

seems to be some info on the Monterosso and Versace link. Might have something to do with your family.

Goodluck

Thank you for your reply.

I have read that post from ancestry.com. This person is actually believe it or not is my first cousin.

We all live in Perth but I thought I could get some relevant information on my maternal great grandfather Vincenzo Versace as he served as a royal guard for the Prince of Naples in his time as my mother often recounts about him. Thought if there were any photo's and what rank he held also for what period of time he held - time line, perhaps in what areas he did serve whilst posted.

Once again, thanking you for your efforts. Ausjo

One lead to follow is putting in a relating persons NAME -GENEALOGY -ITALY in title at Google.com for any research conducted, being conducted or otherwise mentioned in relation to your inquiry. This should be one basic element in a complex research theme. =Peter=
