Thanks to Lou Loccisano from the Calabria DNA Project for making available and Carmen Papallo from the Famiglie di Martone,Italy Genealogy Project for extracting the Martone, Reggio Calabria 1745 Catasto.
The Catasto Onciario were records of taxes paid by the commoners of a comune to the City and list all items in their possession at they time. This is what the taxes were based on and were taken in the mid 1700?s. They also list any servants living on the property at the time.
As seen on both websites, Louis and Carmen each have deep roots in Martone and both have shared so much of their research with us. More civil records and additional information can also be found on Calabria Exchange.

Have questions about how copyright laws work? We all do. It’s not all that black and white since there are different laws – or rather variations of the law- in different countries and conflicting opinions on how those laws are interpreted.
