    My mothers father was born in Brittoli, April 8, 1893, his name was Guiseppe Pagliccia. He left Italy at age 12 and landed in Ellis Island in 1906. He eventually moved to Nova Scotia, Canada and settled there. His father was Franco Pagliccia and his mother was Rosetta De Santo. I am doing a family tree and can’t find anything further about his parents, births, deaths and their parents. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks
