    I am looking for any info on my great grandparents, Michael Angelo Cusentino b.1876 & Angela Saluzzo b.1883. As far as I know they were both born there, but I know for sure Michael was. According to records he immigrated to the US in 1894 & she in 1900. I have not been able to find their parents. I have only names for Michael’s : Antonino Cosentino & Carmella Cutaia, and nothing for Angela.
