My name is Luciane and I live in Maringá, South of Brazil.
I'm looking for some information about Marroco and Basciano families. I know that my great grandfather was Giovanni Marroco and my my great grandmother was Maria Francesca Basciano, both were born in Rocca San Giovanni. They got married in Italy, and there they had two children: Anna Marroco and Antonio Marroco. After that, they came to Brazil, to a city called Franca, São Paulo. Here in Brazil they had other children, one of them was my grandfather Nicolino Marroco, who married Rosa Barduco. They came in the ship "Regina Helena", in about 1910. My father told me that some of Marroco went to Petersborough, Canada, and he remembers that a long, long time ago his uncle Roque Marroco received letters from there.
