Surname Montesano or Losenno

Postby sarahbutterfield » 13 Sep 2016, 19:01

Does anyone have information on the surname Montesano or Losenno? The information I have is Grazia Montesano was the daughter of a wealthy rancher she married a man by the name of Guiseppe Losenno who was a peasant farmer. The area in which they lived was Pisticci, Basilicata, Italy. Guiseppe Losenno was born in 1869. These were my great-great-great-great grandparents (4th generation). I would love to have any information regarding these families!

Thank you!
Sarah

Unfortunately, for an 1869 birth record for the town of Pisticci, you would have to go to a local family history center and rent a roll of microfilm from the Province of Matera that has 1869 birth records on it. The towns for 1869 births are in alphabetical order starting with Accetura and ending with San Mauro Forte on this particular role of microfilm below.

Nati 1868, Matera - Tursi Nati 1869 Accettura - San Mauro F.
