Example I am trying to see where this name shows up in Italy?

I know she lived in Rome at some point.

It looks like there is at least one Ceramicola listed for Rome in the Italian white pages but then of course not everyone lists their name there.

WELL Aspasia I am speaking of lived during the 1963 or less…….her husband was Silvestre or Silvestro Spoto and he lived from 1893 - 1963.

Just wondering where I might find her birth or death…she was married on 6 Sep 1929.

Thanks……ps I am just trying to find where to look.

You've been spoiled Ray with the Vallelunga book and ancestry.com I would concentrate on the info you have and enter that info in your tree
Try this website under region of Latium enter your surname

Marty LOL I have entered all the information from various locations however the only thing I know at this point is this was a mother of a relative and thats all I have is they were in Rome.
I want to be able to do what you do and that is determine Province or Region in order to look effectively on Ancestry. So far the only place I have looked is one Province Caltanesetta.
So I thought I would look up the SURNAME and see where it generally resides and check the closest one to ROME. I am trying to learn more.
