Here's another site - this one for where surnames are found in Italy and the USA..... Not specific towns but areas. I hope you don't mind me adding this Nuccia?

Carole, you add to whatever you like! The more intersting info posted the better for us all! Applause Applause

Naughty Nina seems to have gotten around, huh? super LOL

I had no idea you once lived in Brooklyn! You'll have to share that experience with us...how long were you there for? Was it when you were a child? I'm sure if I read the other posts again the info is there but I can be quite brain dead sometimes! Brick wall

Hugs

No I was an adult (21yo) when I lived 'briefly' in 18th Avenue in Brooklyn. It was only for 3 months and I hated it so much that I packed up and returned to England on the next boat. Yes I was lucky enough to travel both ways on the old majestic 'Queen Elizabeth' boot - Now those memories are worth keeping!

Carole,

Did you take any pictures when you were on the boat? I would love to see them if you did. Brooklyn was never one of my favourite places either. I never stopped in there, just drove through it and that was enough for me! I don't think Brooklyn was the place to be in the 70's...at least my Dad didn't think so!

No - sorry no pictures. Not for me in those days. We're talking about 1961.....and I didn't like Brooklyn either. I was staying with a family at the top end in the 'high numbers'...... But in those days I wasn't at all impressed with the USA in general - even though at that stage I had only visited Brooklyn, NYC and Albany. I was barely 21 and had just finished college and I was appalled when taken out for a meal on one of my first evenings there and I saw a notice fixed to the entrance door of the restaurant which said "No blacks"......

After that I couldn't wait to give up 'the adventure' and return to the UK....

Hi,

Came across the Behind the Name website you posted last week and put it in the Favorites. Now I can check all the relatives' variations, like Emiio and Emidio.

There is one name not in that database that I'm wondering about. It is in the St. Joseph's Cemetery here in Auburn and the only listing for a Ciarla, yet I found a gravestone that said I. P. Ciarla. Have to e-mail the cemetery about that.

Anyway, has anyone heard of this Italian (first) name that they list?

Dueronata

I wondered if they switched the name and surname, but the site Carole and Gens both came up negative for Dueronata as a surname.

Dave,
I have never heard of Dueronata. I searched in the internet. Even got inot the italian google (google.it). Nothing came up, whether 1st or last name.

I also have never heard of Dueronata and, as Maria said, it is not even on google.it. Dunno

Carole, how funny! I didn't know you lived in Brooklyn. I am from Brooklyn. Lived there for 37 years before I moved to Texas 2 years ago. And what's even funnier is that I am from the 18th avenue area. It is called Bensonhurst. Until the 90's it was all Italian - very Italian. I had nothing but great memories growing up there. But in the 90's everything started to change. It even changed more after 9/11. That's when we decided to leave New York. It's not the same place anymore and Bensonhurst is not the same old Bensonhurst anymore.

And Ms. Nuccia....I'll have you know, Brooklyn WAS the place to be in the 70's. Didn't you ever see Saturday Night Fever?????? Very Happy

Thanks for the links, specially the surname one. I knew my maiden last name was scarce and that link confirmed and yes, most of the handfuls are in Sicily (maybe they are just my extended family).

I own four copies of it Gina! I was the "Disco Queen" (not sure thats something I'm too proud of) and More Than A Woman is still one of my all time favourite songs. I will have to post a picture of me during that time..complete with afro. Its pretty funny.

Brooklyn may have been it but Dad didn't seem to like it too much. I guess because we once drove through there and witnessed an adult beating a small black child up with a baseball bat...left a really bad memory for me. Sorry...but don't feel so bad..I lived in Yonkers which was awful.

Remeber the Son of Sam? Lived just up the street from my cousin and although I was already living in Toronto at that time, I was visiting the night he got his last victims..I think Robert Vallente was blinded that night..and it happened all withing a short distance form the house.

New York..exciting yes but I am so glad I live in Canada again. I prefer it.
