Help deciphering town name

Postby Squigy » 27 Mar 2010, 06:04

Hi guys, I was wondering if any of you could decipher the name of this comune on an immigration record. I've read it over several times, but this doesn't help much as I am not familiar with many Italian comunes. I believe it is in the Campania region, but I'm not sure. Anyway, here is the link:

Caserta: Maietta, Rossano, Tessitore, Negro, Peluso, Musone

Campobasso: D'Andrea, Barile

Catanzaro: Fiorelli/Fiorillo, Romito

There is a town called Camerano but it is in the Marche region of Italy and not in Campania.

Looking at the town name on the first page of the immigration record, it does look like Conversano (it starts with C and ends with Sano, for sure). Thank you all for your help!!
