Okay I am totally lost on how this all works... do I just post to these forums and hope to get answers that way. My husband's family's last name is Merando which was changed from Merenda when the came to America. They settled in Kansas I am planning to get more information from him tonight, but I'm not sure where to start on all this any ideas?

Hi,
your ancestor's name are mentioned in this post
you will see that she arrived with Camela Mattera, wife of Vincenzo Trofa, together their two sons, Salvatore and Luigi. That may indicate that Vincenzo's father was Salvatore Trofa, and Maria's father was Luigi Mattera.
