I am researching my TRIOLO family from Barcellona Pozzo di Gotto, Messina. I have just located the marriage record for my ggg-grandparents Rosario TRIOLO and Domenica MAZZEO. They married on 24 Jan 1825 in Barcellona. Domenica lists her birthplace as Barcellona, but Rosario lists his birthplace as "nato in Basia, Distretto di Castroreale, Valle di Messina". My first question is where in the province of Messina is Basia? I have not been able to find it on a map. Second, the "Distretto di Castroreale" is usually listed on most records I have found up till about the 1880's. What purpose did the distretto serve in the Commune/Province political makeup in the early 1800's?
Any insights greatly appreciated!
