    Help! My great grandparents came from Campobasso Ferrazzano. Emmigrated to the United States in early 1900′s. I am doing genealogical research and would very much like to find out who their parents were. I do know for a fact that their parents did NOT emmigrate to the US as they returned to Italy for visits. My great grandfather came to the States first unmarried, and my great grandmother followed later. They must have been married here in the States. How would I go about locating their birth records? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
