The surnames are all from LIGURIA region.
It means that probably they were from GENOVA, or LA SPEZIA, or between these two cities.
I found many PINASCO and LAGORIO in this town: LAVAGNA
You can have further informations searching this website:

Comune di Lavagna
http://www.comune.lavagna.ge.it/

Or you can contact the GENOVA STATE ARCHIVE:

Found this on the Stephen Morse pages:

Lagorio, Maria (b) 1837 year of arrival 1897 Place of residence Reppia

This looks like Luis' wife and Reppia is in the general vicinity of Genoa.

Bernarda,

I noticed in your posting that you have a Lagorio relation. My grandmother's mother was a Lagorio from Boston and the Lagorio family did originally come from Genoa.

I too am pursuing learning about my family genealogy on all sides including the Lagorio family. It would be interesting to see if somewhere along the lines, the families connect.

Best of luck!

Check out www.familysearch.org (Mormon Church)...extensive files in their database. I found this: on searching entire name:

Just a sample, look under International Geneaology for best results.
