    My g/grandparents were Vincenzo Frasco/Frasca and Concetta Nicastro from Bagnoli Irpino. They had 8 children of whom 5 died before reaching adulthood. I have some birth/death/marriage info but would love to branch out and see what records there are for my 2nd g/grandparents. What is the best way to do this? Willing to pay for the info.

    My great grandfather, Louis (Luigi?) Lenzi, was born in Bagnoli Irpino 4 FEB 1891 according to his WW1 draft card, one of his grand daughters told me his father was also Louis and mother Grace (however his death certificate lists father as Generoso I think that was the spelling and mother unknown).
    I would love to find out more about my ancestors in Italy.
