    I am doing research for my fiancĂ©. Her mother’s parents were born in Ceccano in 1900. Louis Joseph Massa and Ana Felicia Massa were third cousins (note that Ana has the same maiden and married last name), both born in Ceccano in 1900, married in Ceccano in 1919-20, and emigrated into the USA around 1930. We plan on traveling to Ceccano in October 2015. Could your service do any pre-research prior to our arrival? Could you conduct a tour of the town? Thank you for your time and consideration.
    Regards, Tim

    I am looking for military records for my grandfather. His name was Felicetto Pinebbi married to Antonia. He fought in WW2 and was a prisoner of war. All my mom can tell me is when he returned to Ceccano the people ran back into their houses because of how dark he was and it took several years for his skin colour to lighten. I would like to find out where he was held as a prisoner of war and any other information I can find out about his military service.
