    Caputo, então eu não tenho total certeza mas acho que o Angelo Marsicano nasceu em 19/12/1870 desta data até 19/12/1871 e casou com Maria Helena Lettiere antes de vir para o Brasil, então deve ser na data de 1886 á 1895.

    O que necessito é a certidão de Nascimento e Casamento.

    My maternal Grandfather, Michele Alessandro Ernesto Esposito son of Archille and Domenica (Soria) was born March 19, 1876 in Casselle in Pittari. On June 19, 1899 he wed Antonia Giusseppa Lovisi daughter of Maria Michela Lovisi in Casselle in Pittari. Antonia, my grandmother, was born March 13, 1879 in Casselle in Pittari. I would very much like to know if there are any relatives of my grandfather still living in Casselle in Pittari. I believe he had two sisters left there when he came to America. My family and I would love to know anything you can find on either family. My grandmother was an only child so I don’t know if anyone is left there from her side of the family. Thank you, so much, in advance for anything you can tell us.
