    I am trying to get information on my great grandparents. My grandfather is Gaetano Spina (8 February 1881 to 19 May 1956). He was born in Atripalda and died in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. His parents are Antonio Spina and Rosa Cucolo who I believe are both from Atripalda. Antonio was born on 7 July 1843 and died in 1903 at some point. The only information I have about Rosa was that she died in 1899. Both supposedly remained in Atripalda. I am just trying to fill in gaps about them and possibly identify their parents.

    I’m looking for the birth record of my grandfather — Camillo Loschi was born in Atripalda on May 28, 1893. He — and perhaps his parents and siblings — immigrated to the USA around 1905 or 1914. Any tips on the best way to research where to obtain a copy of his birth certificate, Thanks

    Hi. I am looking to see if my ancestors were from your town. The last name is Luciano. My great great grand father’s name is Giovanni Luciano and his wife Angela Luciano (maiden name Monica/Monico). I believe his parents names were Giovanni Luciano anf Delores (or a different name that started with a D). They immigrated to the United States between 1890-1894. Any information would be helpful. Thank you.
