    Good Evening,

    I am trying to get information on my husband’s family to build his family tree. I am trying to find out if there are any living relatives still in Sparanise. This would help me trace his roots further back.

    His grandfather was Samuel Police born in January 1883. He married Maria Pratillo and left for America in 1907. His wife and children followed later. His parents were Salvatore and Teresa Pastolico. I am not sure if Maria (Samuel’s wife) was originally form Sparanise or from nearby Francolise. Thank you for any help you can give me.
