Please help to find correct name, spelling??

Postby jamiecapaldi » 01 Nov 2010, 10:31

Below is taken from a marriage record of the Mother.
Her married name is Anna Massarella, but i am struggling to get the maiden name?
It looks like Argenzia, but i can not find that name with an exact spelling on several search sites.
Please can any help?

Sure does look like Argenzia; however I could not find that name or any of several spelling variations in the current Italian telephone directory.

I did find exactly two Argenza's (without the i): http://www.paginebianche.it/execute.cgi ... a&dv=&l=en
Carmine

My hobby is finding things. Having found most of my own, I am happy to help others find theirs. PM me! :)

The surname does read Argenzia-possibly it was Argenziano, which is a current surname, and somehow the ending "no" had just been dropped

Yes, but I thought the geographic location might provide a helpful clue.

There are surname Argenzia arrivals in the Ellis Island records.
Michelina, Ugolino Maria, Maria, Vincenzo, and Rosaria, hailing from Missanello, Saponara, and Palazzo ( San Gervasio).
