    My ancestors (grandparents)were Vincenzo Angeloni born 1880 in Aielli according his passenger list and Novena Ida Mazzulli born 1887 as per passenger list, she also had my uncle tommaso Angeloni with her, both from Aielli. I believe Ida’s parents were Simplicio Mazzulli and Filomena Maccallini. I have written to Aielli requesting a marriage certificate hoping it would show the parents of Vincenzo, but have not received a reply. Is there anyone in Aielli who could find this for me?
