Varlotta from Rionero in Vulture

Posted by Carol Massa McCormack on March 01, 2004 at 16:08:43:

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.
