I have just found a great site!
You can either search for surnames to show the towns, or search the towns to show a large list of all surnames!

Awesome site. If you register you can contribute surnames of your family that arent listed in a certain comune. Thanks for the link!

Hi Jamie, a great site. But, names like anything else, have variations. You may or may not find what you think is the correct spelling but maybe your family had a different spelling within that region.

Who knows..............
