    I am researching my grandfather’s ancestory. His name was Giovanni Notaro, born on January 8, 1886 in Saviano (we believe). He emigrated to the USA sometime in the early 1900’s (say 1900 – 1910). We’re not sure if he had any brothers or sisters. Any advice on how to track whether or not he had any siblings would be appreciated.

    I am looking for information regarding my grandfather’s ancestry in Italy. His name is Joseph Julian in America, but he was Giuseppe Giuliano in Italy. I recently came across his funeral book and lists him as being born March 16, 1876 in Saviano Pro Salerno, Italy. I have no other historical information other than he was married to Stella (Estelle) Papera from Benevento, Italy. He had another relative (possible brother) named Frank Julian who I’m guessing would be Francesco Giuliano. I’m not sure where to look next as my searches have come up empty…though I’ll keep trying. Any guidance you can provide would be wonderful.
