I just updated it on the weekend so it may not be for a few weeks. I'll try to remember to let you know when I've done it, ok?
#122: Re: SURNAME Database -- Please read!! Author: edickins, Posted: Tue Sep 28, 2010 9:03 pm ---- I am researching surnames Capobianco and Zavaro. I don't know what region...all I know is the Capobianco family is listed in the 1910 U.S. Census with the father Matteo having been born in Italy abt 1880, and arrived in U.S. in 1900. The oldest 2 children with last name Zavaro who also were born in Italy in 1902 and 1904 so am guessing the mother was married to a Zavaro before Capobianco, but of course don't know for sure. I can't find on the internet where either name is a typical Italian name...? I'd appreciate any help anyone can give me.
