| Additional Info:
* There is much more that needs to be said for the records that are referenced here. I will keep it
as short as possible and state that many, many thanks have to go out to my cousin Giacomo Toriano who
was also researching this family line over in Italy. Giacomo found my web site on-line and contacted me
by email and provided all of the Italian "Tarantino" & "Toriano" research data that is documented here.
At the time of this contact Giacomo and I were most fortunate that one of Giacomo's ancestors was still
alive (Nunzia Cotrone), and she provided us with a wealth of information relating to our common
ancestors who were born in Italy. Nunzia passed away in 2014 but her recollections and family stories
still guide us towards finding new records on a continuing basis.
