Does anyone have information on this surname....My great great grandmother had this maiden name and I am trying to find out more information. I believe I have extended family that I would like to search for. Her name was Laura Torrone born in Varzi Provence of Pavia, Lombardia. She had several sisters and a couple of brothers. Her fathers name Giuseppe and mother Sofia Berna.
Someone helped me find a little more info. I never did write Italy because I got a little bit discouraged when some people told me that they take a long time to respond but I think I will write anyways. I plan to visit the Family History Library next week. I am very excited to see what I can find. I just know I must have some family in New York because that is where Laura lived. Thank you for reminding me about writing to Italy
How can I find a birth record for Laura Torrone Father's Name: Giuseppe Mother's Name: Sofia Berna she would have been born in 1882 or 83 she was born I believe in Varzi, Provential of Pavia, Lombardia, Italy.

Marty will you take a look at Angola's name on the link for the marriage record that you sent me there seems to be another name that could be her last name other than Azzaretti. Let me know your thoughts please?
