    I am trying to further research my grandfathers birth record in Pescina L’Aquila, Abruzzo, he was born Oct. 6th 1898 Giovanni Bevilacqua, and the only documents I have is when he applied for citizenship here in the US. According to my family he had a sister but i’m not sure what her name was.I don’t have his parents names so my searches are too vague to pull anything up. I’m looking to see if there are any living relatives that I might be able to contact some day.
