    I am searching for information regarding our grandfather, Nicola Sacco, and our grandmother, Antonia DiPaolo. We believe that our grandfather was born in Carpino on October 13, 1893 and that our grandmother was born in Casacanditella on February 29, 1892. We would like to find out more about our family and to find our relatives who remained in Italy. I would appreciate if you could let me know what you charge for your services.

    Thank you.

    I am starting genealogy on my Italian Grandparents. My Grandfather was born 12-08-1879 at Carpino, Foggia, Puglia, Italy. At least that is what I have for the place born. His name as appears on the manifest ship he came over on and what he went by here in America, was Nicola Maccarone. We do not know if the names are exactly correct or not for his parents. We have Matteo Maccarone for his father, Maria Pizarella for his mother. He had a sister Teresina. That is all we have on him. How do we go about getting more information? Can we get from you the address of the sddress of the registry of vital statistics, or are they online. Do they accept English writing. Thank you for any help you may be able to give me.
