Where was my grandfathers family from

Postby brummy » 01 May 2006, 01:29

Hello, I have lots of information about my grandfather Magno Campone, g grandfather Celeste Campone and my gg grandfather Angelo Campone, all thanks to marisa6 but I am still not sure where abouts they were born in Italy and where they grew up.
My grandfather Magno Campone came to Scotland with his parents and later married Carolina Palombo from Picanisco there is a fair chance the Campone's came from Picanisco also but I do not know definately. Can anyone help me :wink:
Campone, Palombo, Fortuna, Colamatteo

Two of your names are not very common in Italy today. You may find these maps interesting:

http://www.gens.labo.net/it/cognomi/gen ... Colamatteo

notice the areas of overlaps between the two names.
Fanucci, Bertolani, Bertolucci
N. California and Tuscany, Italy (Toscana, Italia)
