    Interesting, my family too from Faicchio to New Haven! We all must be related! Mine; Giuseppe Branca (possibly Branco) and Mary Pacelli came in the late 1880′s, they lived in New Haven for a few years and also in Wilmington, Delaware. I am interested in sending for additional records from Faicchio; marriage, birth, etc. I know for certain Giuseppe had a brother Frank, ironically it turned from Francesco Branco (or a) to Frank Brank! There seems to be about 20 years between the two brothers, therefore I am looking for the siblings in between.
    Where can I address my requests and find out the cost for the documents? Thanks

    My greatgrandmother, Cristina Mellone, came from Faicchio to New Haven Connecticut in 1888. She was born in 1880. Her parents were, I believe from marriage records here, Raffaele Mellone and Anna Maria Fappiano. Cristina came to the US with her mother and three sisters and one brother. They were Angelina, Caterina, Eduardo and Teresa. Can you tell me how to find more information on their families in Faicchio and recommend a local genealogy researcher there? Thank you.
