A Capparelli entered NY in 1906 from Campochiaro, SW of the city of Campobasso. This surname is considered Arberesh, or representative of Albanians who came to Italy from the Morea area in what is now called Greece. Someone found out that the surname "Albanese" is the most common in the nearby town of Guardiaregia, and that the local dialect contains a few words that aren't shared by other nearby towns.
In Morcone, a few miles south of the towns mentioned above, several years ago I found an Ansina Bellucci. At that time it crossed my mind that she might be of Albanian stock, but I didn't realize then the extent of the Albanian presence in Italy.
If anyone can report Albanian/Arberesh surnames in any town in Italy prior to 1875, not considered an Albanian or Arberesh village, it will be appreciated.
