I  got a book from Italy a while back,   "MASCHITO    La Prima Repubblica in Italia"
It is about the partisans fighting the Nazi's during World War II.  It is written
by Michele Mancino.

I may translate excerpts some day.  I have found references to the Bochicchio family
Cancianelli family, Gugliemucci family, and the Donato family (listed in the immigrant
chart, above).   I'm not yet sure if all are from Maschito, or just the area of Potenza
    around Maschito.

I'm looking for another publication,  "La Repubblica di
Maschito"  Edizioni del Sud, Bari, 1982.   If you have a lead on this book, I would
appreciate an e-mail.

If you have comments or suggestions, e-mail me
