    Hello. I have been researching my lineage and found that my great grandfather, Ciro Mangione, might come from Alessandria Della Rocca. I believe he was born April 1877. Could you please help me confirm this information and help to make contact with any relatives I have in the area? I will be making a trip to Italy in a few months and would love to meet them. Thank you!
