    I am looking for some information about the following people. Any help would be great. My research has come to an impasse and I am no longer able to find any information and I am hoping someone can help me. Here is some of the information I am seeking assistance with in my search. My great great great grandfather Giuseppe Savoca is from Castiglione Di Sicilia. He married my great great great Rosaria Scavera. Most likely I would put them born around 1815 possibly 1820 later or earlier as well. I cannot find any more research on them and I was wondering if someone could help. One of their children is my two times great-grandmother Caterina Savoca. My two times great-grandmother Caterina married Salvatore Papa and they supposedly had 18 children. But I cannot find any information about them. One of those children is my great grandmother Grazia Papa, Who I know for a fact have a sister named Angela Papa and possibly a brother named Lorenzo. I have information about my great-grandmother button need information on any of the people above. If someone can help me that would be great. I wonder if they were in an orphanage because I cannot find information on them.
    Thank you so much, Angela Delgado

    I am looking for birth records for Pasquale Laviano (born 1865) and his wife, Rosaria Speciale (born @ 1860) as well as their marriage record (@1890).

    They had three children: Carmela, born @ 1898, Lucia, born 1891 and Benedetto, born 1899 – all in Castiglione.

    The family emigrated to Albany, NY in 1911. Pasquale came before them in 1907.

    Could you please advise where I should write to obtain these records?

    Thank you!
