Pagliarello - Puma Marriage or Link

Post by rp76226 » 08 Jan 2012, 18:50

My Puma ancestors were born and lived in Racalmuto, Agrigento, Sicily. Many of their civil records list their last name as "Pagliarello Puma" through multiple generations. Some might have the double last name on the birth record, but not the death record. Both Pagliarello and Puma are prolific, individually found surnames. I have never found a Pagliarello - Puma marriage or other link. Hoping someone might have some insight on how this double last name came to be.
