Looking for info on our surname.

Postby ptimber » 14 Mar 2003, 19:02

There is no listing in the italian dictionary of curnames for any of the sunrame variations that you mentioned and beyond which means that the name is entirely local. Your attempt to trace the correct spelling then narrows down to the town of origin which you say ius Castelforte, Postal code 04021, Province of Latina in Lazio. If you go to www.gens.labo.net/en cognomi/gnera.html and insert these names you will get a geographic distribution of the surname you select in Italy. You have an advantage in knowing the town so I would concentrate on all the available records which may date back to 1803 or 1873 when Italy became unified for civil records and church records go back to 1600.If you wish to conductyou inquiry here in the uSA then go to the Mormon church Family History Library nearest your home and request the Catelforte microfilm and bring a magnifying glass to assist you. The charge is minimal and the work prodigious!! You might want to review www.google.com for a spelling that is assocaited with Csastelforte after you reveiw the microfilm data and see how the name has been spelled. Peter
