Hi, Just found this site and registered. All of my grandparents came from San Mauro Forte to the US in the early 1900s. I have tried to do some family tree research as well and I have many more names to add, including:
Cifichiello
Lamagna
Mulieri
LaBella
Disanza
D'Ambrosio
Fugaro
Armento
Fantasia
DiFato
DiRosario
Spagna
Sanchirico

I also recognize some of the surnames you listed as well. I believe my paternal great grandmother's maiden name was Ronzillo (my father's mother's mother) also my father's mother's sister married a Contrastano. Would love to hear what you have found in your search. Is your family also from San Mauro Forte?

I have a Margherite Tricarico who came to the United States in the early 1900's. She was married to Guiseppe Cavaliere and they were both from San Mauro Forte. Margherite had a brother Daniel Tricarico who also came to the U.S. Any connection?

My 3rd great grandfather Alessandro Ginosa was born in San Mauro Forte. Here is his ancestry I have been able to find using the civil records:

Ancestors of Alessandro GINOSA


Generation No. 1

1. Alessandro GINOSA, born 22 Feb 1807 in San Mauro Forte, Basilicata, Italia. He was the son of Marc Antonio GINOSA and Lucia TROILO. He married Maria Grazia MAISTO 27 Jul 1854 in MacchiaD'Isernia, Campobasso, Molise, Italia. She was born 02 Jan 1827 in Crispano, Napoli, Italia. She was the daughter of Francesco MAISTO and Vincenza PASCALE.

Generation No. 2

2. Marc Antonio GINOSA, born 1764 in San Mauro Forte, Matera, Italia; died 11 Jul 1814 in San Mauro Forte, Matera, Italia. He was the son of Andrea GINOSA and Francesca Di NUZZI. He married Lucia TROILO Abt. 1795 in San Mauro Forte, Matera, Italia.
3. Lucia TROILO, born 1774 in San Mauro Forte, Matera, Italia; died 20 Oct 1824 in San Mauro Forte, Matera, Italia. She was the daughter of Alessandro TROILO and Margherita PRIVINGANO.

1 i. Alessandro GINOSA, born 22 Feb 1807 in San Mauro Forte, Basilicata, Italia; married Maria Grazia MAISTO 27 Jul 1854 in MacchiaD'Isernia, Campobasso, Molise, Italia.

So my surnames I am looking for from San Mauro are:

Ginosa, Troilo, di Nuzzi & Privingano

I wish the LDS would try and microfilm the church records.
