My nephew spells it....Christofaro. Not sure if there's another way of spelling it though.

Hope this helps.

Nuccia :D

Many thanks Nuccia,
on my dad's certificate it was written down as Crislinzz but I know that probably wasn't the correct spelling, my dad was always known 'Christie' short for Christopher. But I just thought if Ihad the correct spelling I'd maybe have better luck looking up Italian records.
Kind regards
Emmy
