Re: Chiodo's of Italy / PA / NY / FL /
Any Chiodos out there who have old church records or an extensive family tree?
I am trying to find more information on Giovanna Chiodo born abt 1753 (unknown where) and died 14 Dec 1803 in Colosimi, Cosenza Italy.She married my 5th Great Grandfather Giuseppe Greco who was born abt 1865 (unknown where) and died in Colosimi, Cosenza, Italy in 1805.
There is a chance both came to Colosimi from elsewhere in Calabria or even Sicily.Genetic testing and comparison of results indicate a connection to Sicily between 300-600 years ago.
They were probably both born in or near Colosimi.I am waiting anxiously to see if the Church records of Colosimi (which were trasferred to Cosenza for preservation) will reval anything.In the meantime any clues would be helpful.
