    My grandparents were from Lioni. My grandfather, Giuseppe Soriano, was born on February 2, 1868. My grandmother, Teresa Sansone, was born in 1870. They were married in Lioni in 1892 and immigrated to the United States. How can I obtain a copy of their marriage certificate?

    Any help you can give me will be greatly appreciated.

    Grazie,
