    I am trying to acquire information about my 3x’s Great Grandfather Michele Infante born 13 May 1866 in Bagnoli Irpino, Avellino, Campania, Italy. His father was Lorenzo Infante (1836) and his mother Concetta D’Urso. I have a picture of Michele in what looks like a Military uniform with a sword and a hat with a large feather in the front standing straight up. Is there any way form abroad to get Military records to find out more information about him and his life? Also looking for a death date.
