    I am interested in chasing my family tree in the village of Caporciano. My father’s name is Antonio Simone, who married Guseppa Paolini from San Pio Delle Camere. Antonio had an elder sister Guiseppina, brothers Medeo and Sabbatino.

    I was wondering if you could help me find out where my family name originated from, and how far back I chase my roots from.

    Thank you for your help.
