Looking for Franano/Tanni relatives

Post by bnblodge » 10 May 2014, 03:20

My great grand parents are Joseph and Maria Antonia (Tanni) Franano. They emigrated to the United States in the late 1880's. I am looking for relatives I may have in Italy. Please respond if you have information. Thank you!

Trying to find what town your searching for to find relatives of your family
There is a public tree on ancestry.com for Joseph Franano 1863-1927 and Maria Antonia Tanni
1866-1934 says both were born in Castellabate, Salerno I checked the online records for her birth in Castellabate, Salerno 1866-1870 didn't see it in those years didn't see the name Tanni in the birth indexes at all in fact

I believe that the surname is Ianni, not Tanni

Piggy-backing on Livio's :D post -

18 listings for IANNI in the Italian Phone book in Castellabate, Salerno
http://www.paginebianche.it/ricerca?qs= ... e+%28SA%29

NO listings for FRANANO :-)
BUT there are 4 listings for FRAGANO...

Should you wish to write to one or more of these "potential" relatives...
