    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
