    I am looking for records of my grandfather Francesco Mastrantonio (Illberg) that was born in Carlantino around 1903. Any help would be very much appreciated.

    Many thanks,

    Ik ben opzoek naar de vader van mijn schoondochter. Zijn naam is Michelin Pinto. Hij heeft in de het eind jaren 1960 begin 1970 gewerkt bij distelleerbedrijf Bols in Amsterdam. Ongeveer 1998 is hij weer vertrokken naar Italia naar de plaats Carlantino. Ik ben de gegevens kwijtgeraakt, maar ik weet dat zijn vader Enzo Pinto heet. Mogelijk kunt u mij een aanknoppunt verschaffen.

    Vriendelijke groet,

    I am researching my Italian family. My great-grandfather’s brother was raised in Carlantino. I believe his name was Donatangelo Lorotano. At age 16 he was legitimized and assumed his father’s name which was Campanelli. His mother was Marianna Muccigrosso from Macchia Valfortore. I would appreciate any assistance.

    I am looking for the birrh record of Donatangelo Muccigrosso. He may have been esposto. His mother Marianne Muccigrosso originated from Macchia Valfortore and after his birth (ca1850) he was given the name Lorotano. It was in the year 1866 that Donatangelo became legitimized as his mother then married Pasquale Campanelli. Any information is appreciated as Donato was brother to my great grandfather. Thank you very much.
