    I am a History student studying United States immigration. I am researching a man called ‘Voci Pasquale’ (or possibly ‘Pasquale Voci’, the name may have been written surname first) who travelled from Gasperina to the United States in 1901. I was wondering what records there may be in Gasperina? It would be great to find out more about him. Any advice or further information appreciated.

    Many thanks,
