    My Grandfather was born 3 Jun 1889 in Caiazzo. His father was Nicholas, mother Josephine.
    He took the name James Baptist Nock after arriving in the US. I think his name was Giovanni Battista Nacca who arrived US in 1903.

    Can you search birth records in Caiazzo for 3 Jun 1889 looking for similarities?
    It would be very helpful.

    Thank you,
    Paul
