That is the furthest back I can trace is that far. The women in my family that married the Scaramuzzo men, all seemed to have been arranged, each woman coming from Italy. It seems a large part of Italian immigrants, came from Auletta region, many settling in my neighborhood here in Staten Island, Rosebank. I would like to see if there are still any Scaramuzzo family that remain in Auletta or anywhere. Thank you so much. Please help direct me where to go.
