    My wife and I will be in Esperia May 14-15 of this year and hope to find records or descendants of my grandfather, Benedetto Palombo, and my grandmother Maria D’Eletto, who were both born in Esperia, I understand, and emigrated to the US in 1905, marrying in 1906. I emailed the town hall (in Italian) some time ago but never got a response, I would appreciate any suggestions you have for me to follow while there. Thanks in advance.
