    I am looking for any Sanzo’s that was my grandmother’s last name. She left for the US in the 20’s

      Scott, I’ve seen many, many Sanzos listed in the Sepino films that are available to order at your local Church of Latter Day Saints. Check online at, and it will tell you how to order them and visit their genealogy centers to look through them. They’re very helpful there! The films go back until 1809, and with a little sleuthing, you can find ancestors even further back.
