Good morning westresort.

If you look right above your post you will see search. Select that and type in caivano and it will bring up all the threads from this site referring to caivano. Some are about the town of Caivano others from people searching for information on their ancestors surnamed Caivano.

You may want to read these.

Regards,
Elizabeth
