    My grandfather, Francesco Donato Buono was born in Vicalvi in 1889. His father was Luigi Buono, his mother Addolorata(?) Riggi. I am trying to find out if Francesco had any siblings. Thanks

    My great-grandfather Pasquale Palombo was born in Vicalvi, Italy on December 13, 1885. We know he traveled back to Vicalvi in the 50’s before he was ill and passed away in the mid 50’s. We understand he was first married to Domenica Palombo and they had two boys. He immigrated to the US, moved to Denver, Colorado where he met my Great Grandmother and then they married. I’m traveling to Rome in a couple of weeks and will be taking a day visit out to Vicalvi and we were hoping to find any birth, or marriage certificate for Pasquale Palombo and his 1st wife Domenica Palombo.

    Thank you in advance for any help you can provide our family.
