from Nicotera, Catanzaro, Calabria, Italy
Nicotera is now a comune in Vibo Valentia, Calabria. It was formerly part of the Province of Catanzaro, Calabria. An Italian national law in March of 1992 and coming into effect 1 January 1996 created the Province of Vibo Valentia.
Finding the link to how I am related to the Cioffi family is possible because of cousins, Vi Siegel and Curt Rimler.
Thank you for sharing your family history.
