Hi Orit, what kind of information are you looking for? If you are looking for records, please mention her given name, birthdate, husbands name, children, siblings.... info like this will help those who are willing to help you.
The fact that she was adopted doesn't necessarily mean that she lost her own surname. Children were taken in by relatives, or even sent to homes, but often kept their own identity, based upon the reason for adoption. I would write to the commune and ask for a birth extract for her and see what happens. Particularly if you know she was born in Siano. If she was born there, they have a record no matter the name.

Give them as much information as you can, but keep it simple. Good Luck.

I just want to thank everyone for their help. This is an awesome site!
Also, thanks to mfjp and Buona for that info. Those were in fact, my great-grandparents! My grandmother (Maria) and her sister Anne aren't listed on the census, because they were married at the time.
BUT all of the children were born in Boston!
Do you have any info on the Roscigno/Rescignos, Botta/Bottos Aliberti, or DiFilippo....ALL from Siano....all seem to be intermarried.
Buona... how on earth did you find that one! This particular manifest would have been really hard to find... That really is them.... so I guess Agata and Giuseppe got married in Italy. If you look at the census I attached earlier, it says that both were married at age 29 and 26..
On the manifest that Buona found they were also 29 and 26.. and this is Agata (Stella's) first trip to the USA... and so her record is found!!
On one of the manifests it says that George immigrated in 1899... there's more out there...
