    Hello,

    I’ve located a NY passenger list that states my Great Grandfather Gennaro Gagliardino came from Olevano Sul Tusciano in 1909 on the SS San Giovanni. Gennaro was born in Italy on August 16 1877. Several years later his wife Gelsomina Santoro arrived in NY in 1912 with their 1st child Ernestine. Based upon the 1910 US census, it appears they were married sometime in Italy around 1903.

    I’m not sure how to refine this information any further, and am wondering if below is enough info to send to Italy to help locate the following:

    Gennaro Gagliardino’s Birth Certificate (Born August 16, 1877, parents unknown)
    Gennaro Gagliardino/Gelsomina Santoro wedding certificate (~married 1903)
    Gelsomina Santoro’s Birth Certificate (born August 15, 1881, parents Diego Santoro, Maria Gaetana Greco)
    Ernestine’s Birth Certificate (Born Oct 27, 1904, parents Gennaro Gagliardino, Gelsomina Santoro)

    I’m not exactly sure where I should write to and how much money I should send to help me recover these important family history docs. Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thank you. -AJ
