Each Saturday this year I am posting one of my surnames, going in alphabetical order. This weeks surname is Casillo, which was changed to Casell after immigration to the US to fit in better on the railroad where my gg grandfather worked.
According to Gens, Casillo is most common in the Campania region of Italy, which is where my family came from.
Italy in Full Detail, Casillo is most popular in the Napoli province today, although 17.15 people with the surname still live in Roccaromana, Caserta, Italy, where my ancestors came from.
I currently have 2 microfilms on order for Roccaromana, which should be arriving any day now. I am hopeful these will expand upon this line.
