Our cousin, Giuliano Colajanni, has informed me that he has just released his second book about SPA genealogy.
The Catasto Onciario, taken in 1749, was a tax like document that listed families in SPA along with their possessions. In the book, Giuliano describes the contents of the document, giving examples of families from SPA.
Giuliano wrote: " Two days ago on August 13th, I presented the book Catasto Onciario to SPA, was present many SPA's people and at the table with me was my brother Mauro, Mayor Francesco Lombardi, the former mayor Antonio Di Ludovico and the history and philosophy professor Julius DeJorio Frisari.
It was exciting and the exposure lasted two hours. People do a lot of questions and requests detailed information on their ancestors, but we must clearly define their upward of 1700, with a thorough search."
The book is in Italian and can be purchased at Amazon:
