    I am researching ancestors “Rocco Veltri” born August 16, 1883. His wife “Giuseppina Piperno” was born June 23, 1884, both born in San Costantino, Calabro. They were married on May 27, 1905 in Costantino, Calabro. I do not know their father and mother names. Do you think I have enough information to pursue my research in Italy? Thank you so much for any help or advise you can offer.
