Soriero is not listed among the Italian surname dictionary indicating that it was either local in origin based upon nickname, some local occupation peculiar to the town of origin or even imported from abroad and Italianized. Since you did not furnish the town of origin for your family I was unable to probe history of the town or the number of people with that surname. Sorry

Hi Peter,

The Soriero side of my family was from Ruvo del Monte province of Potenza. I appreciate your insight

Best Kevin

The website for Ruvo del Monte is http://www.tuttitalia.it/basilicata/68-ruvo-del-monte
You may wish to see the telephone directory there for 6 potential relatives at http://www.paginebianche.it with names,addresses and map. You might want to click on the http://www.comune..for info on the town as well and click on the "TURISMO" section on the left for fotos etc. Peter
