Sometimes I think we'll never know what the real spelling of certain surnames really was/is. Just like with the Volpentesta/Volpintesta surname, I have come across spelling issues with the supposedly Tallarico
surname which within the same family can be found spelled as Talerico
! And this is BEFORE the family name arrives in the United States, so there is no way we can blame the immigration workers here! LOL
[BTW, once in the USA, the Tallarico surname varied from Talarico to Tilrico
Fun, fun, fun!
