Campolo

Postby camwal » 26 Mar 2015, 21:52

I'm pretty sure that my grandfather was born in Chorio. His father's name was Francesco and his mother's name was Angela Gurnari. Does anyone have any information about this family? I think they might have moved around a bit. There don't seem to have been many Campolos in this area.
Many thanks for any/all responses!

Are you sure about the spelling of Chorio? There's no such location in Italy...

I appears that the village of Chorio belongs to the town of San Lorenzo in RC
It presently has a population of only about 324 residents...

I see. Chorio is now a hamlet(frazione) of San Lorenzo.
In Italian the group of letters "ch", as well as "gh", is always followed by the vowel "e" or "i", never bay "a" or "o" or "u".

Perhaps of Greek origins?
Looks like there is an accent over the "o" - Choriò and possibly an alternate? name - Roghudi. OR - is that another/different village?

Here is what is on WIKI about this place...
