    My paternal grandfather was from Celle di San Vito. I would love to find records of his birth and where he lived before coming to the USA and if he has any surviving relatives. His name is Tomas Manganelli, born in 1898 to Giovanni Manganelli and Angela Maria De Simone. He immigrated to the USA at approximately age 16, 1914. Thank you so much, Diana
