Varlotta from Rionero in Vulture
My grandmother's maiden name was Varlotta. She was supposedly born in Basilicata. I would appreciate any information about her. She came to America through Ellis Island and married Giuseppe Berardo. They had 4 children: Josephine Sabina, Arturo, and Madelina. I'm not sure which city in Basilicata she was from.
