    My Grandmother ( Assunta DiGiovanni) was one of seven children born to Enrico and Maria Grazia DiGiovanni. My Grandmother and two of her siblings came to America…Palma and Gaetano. I am trying to find out more about the others, Marietta, Angelina, Antonio and Franco can you give me any guidance.
    Assunta was christened in the Church of San Gabriele which I cannot find if it still is in existence. Her Godparents were Tito Grancelli and Teresa Lattacco. If you can give me any ideas I would appreciate it.

    Looking for a birth record for Ercole Lombardi, born about 1851 in Civitella Casanova according to his 1878 marriage record from Trivigno, Potenza, Basilicata, Italy. He lists his parents as unknown on his marriage, and I’m trying to track them down.

    thanks for any help.
