    Hello! Looking for my paternal grandfather Carmine DiStefano born around 1895.

    December 1920 Passenger List says Carmine was born in Ferrazzano, Italy 1895. He was 25 yo when the ship SS Duca D’ Aosta departed from Napoli to New York, USA. He listed his father’s name as Francesco from Ferrazzano. I do not have any other documents for him connected to Italy. I know he had a nephew who stayed in Italy so trying to connect with any relatives I may have there.

    Any help would greatly be appreciated! Thank you so very much.

    I am researching my great-grandparents who were from Ferrazzano. I found my great-grandmother’s birth certificate from 1896 and it said that her place of birth was Largo Castello? Isn’t this a castle? They were poor peasants, so Im thinking perhaps it was some sort of hospital at some point? Any ideas???

    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.
