Loporto

Post by Lopo » 03 Feb 2010, 16:20

Hi,
I'm from Malta and i know my great great grandfather came from Sicily, Im looking for any information on the surname Loporto, I know that Rocco (Roque) Loporto was born in Terranova (Gela) 15/04/1846 but this is the only information i have been able to dig up. Any information about the surname Loporto or how/who i need to contact to learn more(parents/siblings) would be really appreciated.

Thanks and regards,

K Loporto
