And another which has been translated into English

And another one in Italian.

Hope this helps.

That is a good site, if you look around there is a surname checker where you put in your name and see how many people in the town have it.

I'll look for some more, hope that helps.

Valarie,
Great find on the Omaha/Carlentini site.

Thanks Valarie, I did that for my town, and it was great. Savoca is the most popular name in my whole town, so I figured Swipes might like to look and see.

Mike
