    I am researching my great grandfather Salvatore Lento, who was born in Terranova da Sibari to the parents of Giovanni Lento and Caterina Ursino. He was born in May or June 1883 and also had brothers Antonio and Gennaro. He came to America around 1905. I am trying to find a marriage record and also more information on his parents and if they were from the same or different towns. Salvatore may have married in Italy to a woman named Cusumina Giangreco or Cianguano?, also born approx 1883. Cusimina’s parents were Lucia Capozzi and Paolo.
