    As i currently understand it, my great-grandparents left Treviso in probably the late, late 1890s or very early 1900s. The story goes that they changed the spelling of their name to Liranza, seems that they Spanishized it upon their moving to Cuba.
    I heard that my grandfather Juan Liranza was affectionately referred to as Juan Lara, so I’m wondering if there are any surnames in Treviso that contain “Lara”?
    Just asking in case anything comes to mind – – I do continue to investigate and search for my family in Treviso.
    Thank you.
