I have recently been told that my Muschetto Family may be Albanese. How do I get in touch with the Arbresh Society? I been told that the Muschettos and Matranga's married. The Matrangas are from Plana de Crechi, and or Santa Chtistina Gella. Muschetto's may be from Plano de Albania. What do you think of these leads and how do I follow up on these? Any help would be appreciated.

I have tried the Italian Phone book, because I do not read Italian I am stuck at the top of the page. I am not sure if they are asking for my name. They then ask for surname and town which I could fill out. Aby help? :oops:

suanj, thank you.
I've been watching your research on this and was just jumping in when it appeared I could help.
This one came from using google with both surnames. It's nice when a google search works out.
You are the master!
