    My records show that my ancesters came from San Giorgio but never distinguish between Albenese or Morgeto. Many family members said, ‘In toe of Calabria, kicking Sicily!’ (Sorry I hope that is not offensive!)
    But in my research there is a lot of connection to Albenese! My grandmothe came from Acri. Grandfather Surname – Fusaro.

    Can you help me?
