    My paternal great grandparents Silvio Tasca (15 February 1872 – 01 March 1914) and Rosario Maria Angelina (Abt. 1873 – 27 March 1914) emigrated from Cupello around 1897 to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. I believe Silvio’s parents were Raffaele Tasca and Brigida Boschetti but then I can find nothing more. How can I gain more knowledge of my paternal ancestors until that time I’m able to travel to Italy?

    Also, someday I hope to visit Cupello….if I don’t rent a car, what is the best way to get there? And are there taxis or Uber in Cupello?

    Thank you so much!
