Calvano or Calvaniso?

Postby jenaglira » 18 Dec 2013, 18:53

I am searching for any information on where Calvano or Calvaniso may have been. My ancestors came to the US in 1893 and 1897. One listed their last residence as Calvano and the other listed it as Calvaniso. I cannot, however, find information on where this could be. My search has showed that they were not the only ones who listed Calvano as a residence in Italy. Any help would be much appreciated! Thank you!
