    I am trying to locate the marriage record for Giovanni Zimarino & Barbara Tiberio who married in Casalbordino on June 27, 1909 (according to Barbara’s naturalization papers). Also, the places of birth for each were, I’m sure, slaughtered in translation since I can’t locate either. John gives his as Olionese and Barbara at Ogninesi. Any help figuring out what the real place names are would help so much in to further research on this family.

    Thanks so much for your assistance!
