    Hello. I am trying to get a copy of my maternal grandfather’s birth certificate. He was born in Vallata in 1879 and immigrated to the US in 1903. The name on the Ellis Island manifest is Nicolo Gallicchio. I visited Vallata about 10 years ago and met with a number of Gallicchio’s; however, they were unable to assist me in locating a birth certificate. If it is not possible to locate the birth certificate, I would appreciate any assistance is acquiring a document from the Vallata town hall ascertaining his birth there. Grazie mille!!!!
