    If you can help me in my search of great grandparents and family members, I would appreciate in hearing
    from you, and receiving information about your fees. I have reason to believe that the following were
    born and lived in San Nicola dell’Alto, province of Crotone, Calabria:
    Gloria Ruperta, born 1870. Married Biagio Gatto, born 1868-1870 possibly from Carfizzi or San Nicola
    Sarafina Ruperta, born 1876, married Domenico Auselio, born 1874 possibly from Carfizzi or San Nicola
    Giuseppe Gatto, born 1894; Michele Gatto, born 4/2/1897
    Maria Auselio, born 1900
    Michele Auselio, born 9/3/1880
    The two towns of San Nicola dell ‘Alto and Carfizzi may have been where the marriages took place.
