    Buon Giorno!
    My great-grandfather Bruno Crea was born February 23, 1876 in Sant’Eufemia d’Aspromonte and I believe he married his wife (my great-grandmother) Domenica Cannizzaro in Sant’Eufemia also, sometime in the early 1900s. I know he lived in Sant’Eufemia with his wife until he emigrated to the United States in 1909 to settle. The story is that he did not want to leave Calabria, Italy, but there was an earthquake and they lost a lot of belongings in the quake, so they had to move to make a better life.
    Would I be able to access his birth record/certificate? I would like to know his parents’ names and where they lived in Sant’Eufemia. Also, is there any way to search for his marriage certificate? I would like to know when and where my great-grandparents married so that I can visit the church one day, if it still exists.
