    I am searching for the family of my uncle Gabriele Ianotaro who was born in 1908 on 25 October in San Felice a Cancel. His parents were Clemente and De Luca Maria.
    I have a relative’s name and address on an old letter from about 1990. The hand writing is difficult for me to read but it looks like
    De Luca Mototalena
    Via Antonio De Luca
    80033 Napoli

    Another letter I have has the same address but with the name Andonetta Maddelina

    I would like to meet any living relatives when I visit the Naples area in May or June. Can someone confirm the name of the family living at Via Antonio De Luca? A telephone number or email address to contact the family?
    Thank you for your assistance.

    Dear Sir/Madam,
    It is a pleasure to be speaking to you!! My name is Eduardo Morgili, I am originally from Brazil but at the moment I am living in the UK.
    It has been a while I have been searching for my great-grand father’s birth certificate who was born in San Felice a Cancello (Caserta) but unfortunately I have not been successful. I have been to San Felice a Cancello and I have got his father’s and one of his brother’s birth Certificate but for some reason I couldn’t get his. I don’t speak Italian at all which made things more complicated to communicate with the people from the comune and maybe that is the reason I couldn’t understand why they did not give the document I need. I sent them a fax few weeks ago asking for this document as I met an Italian friend who is now helping me with the search but they replied saying that they have not found anything in their files.
    I have a copy of his passport with some of his details to help but things don’t seem to be working out. Someone mentioned to me that maybe he was born on the ship on his way to Brazil but I am not sure about it and I have no idea how I can found out.
    So, I am just writing for an advice really because I don’t want to give up yet.

      Eduardo. If you have not found information you’ve been looking for I would be happy to try and find it for you. Either post me your email address or put your great grandfather’s name, year of birth, and name of his parents and I will see if I can find them for you. It is possible that the record is not to be found for some reason or other but I will look for you. I also have a record that I can not find even though I found the siblings. I have his birth date but his record is not in the record books so I know it’s probable that they are being truthful with you.
