#1: Surname Fiorenza Author: pagano, Posted: Fri Nov 08, 2013 11:15 am ---- This is a really great site and I am thankful for the people that provide this information to everyone.
I am looking for my family tree. My mother's maiden name was Carmela Fiorenza and she was born September 14, 1916 from C. Pazzano, Reggie Italy. Her mother's maiden name was Interdonato. She came to the U.S. around the age of 4 in 1921.
Any info you can provide would be appreciated or let me know if you need more information.
