Hello,
I have done the genealogy work on this family in the USA. According to their various immigrant ship manifests, they all came from Catanzaro, Catanzaro, Calabria. I found one site that had some Catanzaro genealogy help, but it broke the area down into other Locales which I did not recognize. Does anyone know of any online databases to research these families in Italy?

The surnames are VALERIANO and MISTICO.
Another surname may be PUZZONIA? (this is mentioned only once, not sure if it is a surname or a place name).

As stated, some of the family left Italy for the US:
Salvatore Valeriano , b.1885, immig 1913
Romania Valeriano, b. 1909, immig 1926
Elvira Valeriano, b. 1910, immig 1926
Ambrosina Valeriano, b. 1908, immig 1925
Barbera Mistic, b. 1894, immig 1914

Salvatore's first wife, and mother of the three daughters (Ambrosina, Elvira, and Romania) died in Italy some tome between 1911 and 1913, supposedly in childbirth. Her first name may have been Adeline or similar.

Thaank you for any help or direction,
MeLani

This is the name given for Romania and Elvira's nearest relative in Italy--grandmother Serafina Puzzonia--on the 1926 ship manifest you referenced. Puzzonia is a surname which exists in Catanzaro. Not sure if Serafina was the children's maternal or paternal grandmother but Salvatore's manifest gives his nearest relative in Italy as mother Serafina. Also he is joining his brother in law Francesco Brescia so it's possible that Brescia was his first wife's surname.

Thank you for the response. Yes, that is where I got the word Puzzonia from, but I didn't know if it meant a surname or a locale. Thank you for clarifying that. That would be Serafina's last name then, and she is the mother of Salvatore ... he references her in a few places.

I also wondered about Brescia, but I can't find any way to check or verify if that was Salvatore's first wife's surname.

thank you again
