    I am looking for confirmation of birth date for Antonio Tommaso Cirillo born 1845 and died 1922 in Scandale Italy. He was married to Affinita Nunziato Vennera Artese who was born in 1853 and died Feb 14 1928.

    My father, Modesto Lupia, was born in Utica New York in 1916. His parents had emigrated to the United States From Scandale a few years prior to that date. During World War II my father was a soldier in the United States Army and was able to visit Scandale where he found several relatives living there at that time. Can you tell me whether or not there are any Lupia family members remaining in Scandal or in the area around Scandale?
