    We are looking for siblings of my husband who was born in Scisciano April 20, 1955 and given the name of Carmine Iovino. He was adopted to the USA in 1958 or 59. We are planning a trip to Italy in July this year. We also believe he has an older sister that was adopted as well to the US but we don’t know where or to whom or any other information about her.
