Surnames - Zana, Appolonia and Lolla

Postby petals » 09 Jan 2010, 21:14

I am looking for information on both my Grandfather's and Grandmother's sides of the family. My Grandfather came over from Nadro Italy. His name was Baptista Zana. His Father's name was the same and his Mother's name was Maria Appolonia. Also I am looking for my Grandmother's side, thier surname is Lollo, Simeon and Antonia.
If anyone has information or thinks they might have a connection to either family I would appreciate any help.

also, from your other post
petals wrote:My Grandfather came from Nadro Italy, his last name was Zana, then changed to Zeno when he came to the US. His and his father's name was Baptista and his mother's name was Maria, her maiden name was Appoloina and they to went to visit relatives in Managohela, Pa.
When my grandfather married, he settled in Huton, Ohio.
But I have no records on his parents, except for his father's trave to the US to go to Monogahela, Pa.


Hello Jennifer
Welcome to the forum :D !
Does the Zeno Family Tree on ancestry. com by 'flowerptz' belong to you?
Are you still missing some manifests, census & military registration records? We can help you find them.
Do you need direction on how to research your family in Italy?
Thank you,
Valarie

Thank you for the replies, I have all of these and yes I am on Ancestry.com as flowerptz. I am lost when it comes to finding out information from Italy on both Batista and Maria. Not sure where to go or look. I have already tried to find out information on the Appolonias that resided in Monogahela, Pa here in the US but nothing ever turned up. So I think they might have just been visiting. As far as the Zana side I am stuck in Nadro but no further info. If you have any info that might help me with my journey please let me know, I would greatly appreciate it. I think my grandfather was the only child, but not sure.

Thank you for the update :D !
Checked the Family History Library (LDS). It appears that they have not filmed the civil records for Ceto.
Have you tried writing to the comune for some of your family's records?
