Two names: Deo, Policastro

Postby Ddeo » 28 Mar 2007, 17:34

Hello,
I am new to the site, and Im guessing this is where my question for information begins.

I've been trying to find information on these names for some time.

I know that Policastro is from San Gregorio Magno near Salerno, but was also wondering if it may be from elsewhere further back.

For Deo, I think it may come from Venice, but I'm not sure.


I'm not really sure what people are in this forum and what kind of information they have access to, but any help would be amazing!

I just did a bit of research, and found that in San Gregorio Magno, Reverendo Don Giovanni POLICASTRO built a private chapel, which looks like it could be pre 1900s.

So yeah, I'm pretty sure the name comes from here, but any other history would be great if anyone knows.
