Surnames: Florio, Pierro, Merola, Cozzi, Cozzo, Fusco, Milo
My grandparents were born in Furore Florio) and Salerno (Pierro). I have found several Florio families, one Pierro and one Cozzi. The Cozzi name has been found spelled Cozzo and Cozzi. My grandmother's mother's name was Evio Cozzi (Cuzzo).
Do you have any of these: Gaetano Florio - most likely from Furore; siblings Adelaide and Pasquale Florio - most likely from Salerno; Merola from Furore; siblings Felecia, Antonio, Josephine, Stella and Andrea from Salerno area?

If you have time, I would enjoy hearding form you.
Respectfully,
Beverly (Florio) Noland

My area is concentrated in 2 communes - Valva and Colliano! They are both are in the province of Salerno. The City of Salerno is also the same named Province of Salerno. Have you been able to go past your gr- grandparents??? LDS the Mormons have been promising for several years to film the civil records but delay after delay has occurred. Much of the province of Naples records has been filmed and I believe they are the records from 1910 to 1810.

I was in Salerno and my gr-granfathers village in 1994 - beautiful place! It is kind of like the weather of Northern Florida with palm trees on the coast and mountains in the middle!

The names are common to the Province of Salerno - it is important to narrow down the village of origin!
