    Hello, I am trying to locate information on my grandmother, Angela Migliara. She was born in Ioppolo Giancaxio, on 4 Jan 1907. She married Salvatore Americo in Nov 1924, and had her first child, Giuseppe Americo on July 1, 1925. I know she was either imprisoned or spent time in an asylum in the mid-late 1920’s.

    This is all the information that I have. I am hoping to find out what happened to her, and when she died.

    Thank you for any help or advice you can provide.
