There was actually another person asking about the Laniado family (from Livorno Italy, I believe). My only comment is that there were Laniados from Syria (Sam Laniado from Brooklyn NY sent a congratulations via telegram to my parents when they got married in 1951).
So sorry that I can't be of help.
