Welcome to the Forum :D !
We would all be happy to help if we can.
We would need a bit more information on what you're looking for (US or Italian records) and a few details on who you're researching.
Thank you, Valarie

this is as far back as I can go with the surname Manfrin
Antonio Manfrin born 1858 in Cont di Brente, Vicenza Italy(looking for later lineage)in that Manfrin line...
he married Maria Massarotto daughter of Giovanni Massarotto and Dominica Martini, Maria was born 1857 in the same place as Antonio..I am looking for lineage before her birth in the Massarotto family as well as the Martini family.... This is where it begins for me...

I noticed a few requests for Massarotto surname, but they are old, so I thought I would start something again!!! About the Manfrin name, I can not find anything prior to Antonio and don't know who his parents were...thank you

Thank you for the update, but the birth location may be spelled incorrectly*?
Could it have been Ponte di Brenta, a village(frazione) in the comune of Padova (Padua), in Padova (Padua) Province, Veneto Region?

If it is, your Family History Center can order microfilm for the civil registrations from 1871-1929 for Ponte di Brenta. Requests for records before 1871 will have to be made to the local parish.

Do you have all of your US records?

Thank you, Valarie

Dear Jazzmiss when you say you want to know more about the surname MASSAROTTO does that mean you want to know about the origin of that name and not the genealogy of the family bearing that surname? The surname Massarotto along with a group of other similar sounding surnames are alterations and derivations of the base surname MASSARI first mentioned in 1039AD. =Peter=

For records earlier than 1871, the church address in Ponte di Brenta di Padova:

S. Marco Evangelista
Piazza S. Marco 1

Possibly Comune di Campolongo sul Brenta, Provincia di Vicenza, Regione di Veneto?

Or, Comune di Tezze sul Brenta, Provincia di Vicenza, Regione di Veneto?

Dear Jazzmiss go to Google.com and put in the title
MASSAROTTO SURNAME GENEALOGY VICENZA ITALY and research any past researches on the family or families bearing the surname. For the moment there are 2,000+ references for Massarotto for all of Italy. =Peter=

Nope, didn't miss it - but I was wondering because the OP specifically mentioned Vicenza.

On the other hand, do my eyes deceive me, or does the manifest you posted show place of birth (last column, sheet 2) as "Venezia"?

I am not following this thread in detail so apologize if I am way off base. :P
