Hi,

Looking to broaden my search and request information if any on the following: Contrastano, Distefano (Di Stefano), Dibiase (Di Biase), Diluca (Di Luca), Dirocco, Mega, Pierro, Diriso, Tricarico, Tufo, Rivellese, Deufemia, Manzo, Ronzillo, Tremamondo and Lacovara. Dates around the early 1800s.

The area of my search would be concentrated especially around San Mauro Forte and Accettura area of Matera.

Regards

Michael

Hi maple 62,

Any chance that "Pierro" could be "Di Pierro" or De Pierro"? I'm researching Di Pierro/De Pierro in Armento, Potenza area.

Regards,

Hi JC,

That's interesting as I have both a Nunziata Manzo (b 1809 & married Domenico Dalaimo) and Maria Tersea Diriso (b 2nd April 1866, daughter of Vincenzo Diriso and Margherita Mega) in my tree.

In England we have a community of San Maurese, and I know a Deufemia family. Their surname is spelt Deufemia and not D'EUFAMIA as you've spelt it. I also have a Deufemia in my lineage somewhere but couldn't find it when writing this.

Are the other names Morace, Floro/Flora, Scarpetti etc also from San Mauro Forte?

Hi jcsm,

I have a Prospera, Mauroantonio and Giuseppe 'Pierro' in my tree, who all originated from San Mauro Forte, Matera. Infact, my own godfather is also a 'Pierro'.

Sorry I can't be of any help on this one.

Michael.

I also have deufamia/d'eufamia, floro, scarpetti, and morace in my tree from san mauro forte.

Giovannina "Jenny/Jennie" Floro was my great grandmother, married to Carmino Dinota. Her parents were Antonio Floro and Maria Morace.
