Argiro in Calabria

Hy everyone! First of all, please excuse my English.
I am an Argiro from Calabria.
First thing you all must know, the name Argiro in Italy is written Argirò with the little mark on the O.
In Calabria the Argirò Family has about 20 members. Most of them live in the Region Catanzaro. The former Family came from Badolato, where only my Uncle with his Family lives.
But; there are other Argirò Family all over Italy. A aunt of mine lives near Firenze.
And more:
My grandfather had got a sister and a brother who leaved Italy and went to Australia, Sidney and Melbourne.
My father still has contact with them.
MY Father leaved Italy in the 60`s and went to Switzerland.
Here where i live, we are 3 Family’s. My Father’s Family and his two cousins Family’s.
The Swiss-Part of the Argiro Family has got a own Server with a Homepage argiro dot CH.
The page is not very up to date.
Abut History:
My grand-grand-father did never talk about people who leaved Italy for the States. But my grandfather talked about. He sad to me, that there must be People in Canada and the USA.
On my missions for Peacekeeping in Bosnia, Kosovo and Albania I heard about a legend of a princes Argiro with is likely Cinderella. There I found out that the Name Argiro (argento means Silver) came from Greece. There the name is written Argiros. Look for Hotel Argiro in Crete.
I hope I could help with this information.
