    I am looking for genealogical information on my family from Frascineto. My great-grandfather, Angelo Cortese, was born in Frascineto on June 24, 1886 to Gaetano and Letizia. He emigrated to the United States in 1903, on the vessel “California”. He may have had a brother or close relative, Genaro Cortese, born March 2, 1976. I have no further information for his parents or other relatives. Any information you can provide would be most helpful.
    Thank you.
