Surname of Diazzo

Postby Nigro » 19 Jul 2010, 19:31

Believe my grandmother's surname was Diazzo or something to that spelling. She was born in Dentecane, Italy. Can you help me? Her name was Annina, her brother was Vincenzo and sister Lucia.

Hello Donna.

Dentecane is a frazione of Comune di Pietradefusi, Provincia di Avellino, Regione di Campania (Southern Italy).

I did a quick search of the Italian telephone directory ( http://www.paginebianche.it/index_en.html ) and was not able to find any Diazzo's or variants of that name. Hopefully someone else will offer some likely suspects.

Did your grandmother emigrate to the US? Can you give us some idea of her date of birth and, if she came to the US, where did she settle. What was her husband's full name and year of birth?

Hello Donna :-)

Maybe it was spelled D'Azzo?

Duh! I can't believe I fell for that one again.

Yes, there are about 32 D'Azzo's throught Italy according to the telephone directory, but none in Pietradefusi.

The name Di Azzo or D' Azzo appears mainly in Sicily.

Hi mj :-)

Found D'Azzo in Naples as well.

Would help if we had approximate year of birth, name of husband, and US residence...

Is it possible the name is Di Orio? It is mistranscribed as De Torio.
