My grt grandfather, Francesco Scaringi, was born 1831 or 1832 in Italy. He left Italy aged about 14 years. He came to New Zealand (about 1845 or 1846). He was a sailor who jumped ship. He worked as a butcher, and a boatman. He lived in NZ 74 yrs and died aged 89 yrs in 1920 in Wellington, NZ. I do not know which village in Italy he came from. Has anyone from Muro, Lucano, lost a relative? I looked for Scaringi bdms and surnames in Italy. There seemed to be some families of that name in Muro, Lucano. From there I was in email contact (some years ago) with Ottavio Viglione. He supplied me with names of possible family for my Francesco. Ciao, from Marion.
