    I am looking for my great grand-father’s parents. His name was Giovanni Alfonso born in Provvidenti between 1858 and 1861 and he arrived in Canada around 1884/1886 where he married Victoria Caroline Guidi in 1888.

    I would appreciate your help if you have any information about his family.

    Thank you
