There are several Castelfranco and Castelforte in Italy, and I don't think there's a town with both names. Do you have the documents in which you found such place names? Who is the first of your ancestors who went to America? Have you found his Ellis Island manifest? These can be useful info to help you.

I can't seem to find anything. Thank you so much! Lisa
no, they are no same places, however considering the surname: -Castelforte( in the past in Caserta province/Campania region, IT, in Latina province/ Lazio region, IT currently) -Castelfranco ( most probably is Castelfranco in Miscano, Benevento province, Campania region, IT)

Yaniello, Rocco M. Dec. 28, 1895 ( obit says 1894 ) Castelfort, Italy - Jan. 12, 1977 Towanda, Pa. Son of Pasquale and Angelica Yaniello. Rose Josephine Smith 1899 - 1971
I have been searching ancestry.com forever and can not find Angelica or Pasquale. I have tried Iannello, Ianniello, (which have been documented as possible spelling changes in my family) and all other variations.
