Welcome to the Forum!
Here's pretty good article on the origin of Italian surnames (location is one source):
http://www.italyworldclub.com/genealogy/surnames/

This site will show you where your name is found in Italy
(type your surname in the 'Cognome' box, then click the red arrow)
http://www.gens.labo.net/it/cognomi/

If you need assistance in locating family records, we would need more details
Thank you
Valarie

This may help
If your family emigrated to the US thru NY you may find a ship manifest here with a place of origin

If you're just starting out on your search, it's best to start with yourself and work backwards thru your family using clues you find to identify your immigrant ancestor

Let us know if we can help

thanks for the help Valarie
no we didnt immigrated in usa
the story that i have is that two brothers moved from Italy to Serbia and opend a bank of some sort around 1750-1800
unfortunatley Serbia dosen't have any immigration records for that time period
only records are held by the churches or monasteries but they where all destroyed durring WWII so i dont have any documents

http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solaro_(famiglia)

i think i might be related with them if they originated in same area

any repy's are more than welcome
