    Hello,

    I am looking for information on Ciccarone and Smaldino from Cassano in the 1800′s. Maria Ciccarone was born there in November 1881. Her parents were Giuseppe Sante Ciccarone and Lucia Smaldino, whom I believe were also born and raised in Cassano. I have been able find a lot of information from the Miale part of the family and others from the Acquaviva delle Fonti archives online. Is there something similar for Cassano?

    Thanks so much!

    Dan
