Seeking my family name in San Marco In Lamis

Postby OzItalian » 24 Nov 2015, 00:33

Buona giornata e saluti dall'Australia.

All my family, my parents, my aunts, my uncles, grand parents, all came from San Marco In Lamis, Italy. I am the first born in Australia. My family name is Matera and my mother's family maiden name is Iannacone and Cerrone. I know many of my relations with the same Matera name are still living in the town and in nearby provinces. Due to my Dad's passing recently, I am desperately trying to track down my "Matera" relatives and family tree on my Dad's side as I have never met them nor know much about my Dad's side of the family. Thus my query.

My parents moved to Australia in 1964, and all my mother's side moved to Australia as well. But my Dad's side remained in Italy. I know over the years many of my Dad's family sadly passed away, but I do know some still are alive and living in San Marco. So am after any connections or people who can help put me in contact or direct me to how I can make contact and re-connect.

Thanking you kindly.
Joe
