    I am interested in finding information about my maternal grandfather and grandmother who I believe were both born i Civitanova del Sannio.

    My grandfather was Donato Minichiello and my grandmother was Crestina DiPalma (married Minichiello). They died in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada in 1982 and 1980 respectively and were born in the 1800′s.

    Thank you for any information you can provide and it would be interesting to know whether there are any descendants still in the area.
