    I’m currently researching the birthplace of my grandfather, Pietro Lepore, born in 1888, in Naples, possibly in the Benevento Province. I know he married my grandmother (Brooklyn, NY), Giuseppa Marie Iannotta, who was born in Sant’Agata De’Goti in 1901. I’m trying to find out what year they both came to America and if possible some information as to how I may obtain official birth certificates. My grandmother’s father’s name was Lorenzo Agostino and her mother’s name was Rosa Mangino. Any assistance you can provide would be most helpful. Thanking you in advance for your attention of my request.
