    Hi, I’m trying to find information about my Italian family that’s on my father’s side, my paternal grandfather’s family from this area. I have found multiple records and documents online but ultimately am not able to find out anything further beyond my great-grandfather that immigrated to the US from Italy. I’m unable at this point to find any information or leads about his mother or father (my great, great, great grandparents). Our last name is Sgobba and I’m not finding that name much. I would love to find out if I can find out more information about my Italian ancestors. Thank you for your help! I look forward to hearing back from you.
    Best regards,
    Joy Sgobba
