    My family is from Castel San Vincenzo. The surnames of my great grandparents are Cozzone, Di Michele, Parente and Vacca. I am told that the family home was displaced when the lake was built in the 1950’s and my family that was still living in Castel San Vincenzo moved to Milan.

    My grandfather, Giuseppe Cozzone and grandmother, Teresa Parente, came to the United States around 1900.

    I will be coming to Castel San Vincenzo in June to visit the town.

    I would be interested to know if there are any historical pictures and records and also if there is anyone still around who knows of my families.

    Good evening.

    I came upon your website and was hoping you could help me. I’ve been trying to find the birth certificate of one of my Italian ancestors but I’m not quite sure who to contact.

    What I know about him is his name, parents’ names, year of birth, place of birth, Brazilian marriage and death certificates (where he immigrated to) and a passport issued by the Italian consulate in Brazil.

    If you could help me in anyway I will be extremely grateful. Thank you for your time.

    Kind regards,

    Mariana Gualano
