    Hello, I am researching my husbands father Candido De Barba born in Trichiana on 25/11/1908. His father was Angelo DeBarba and his mother Victoria Canal. He was christened on 25/11/1908 at St Antoni de Fortal ( this is what we think the writing says) I have these records from his mariage documents. He was married in Crunes cites Lorraine France on 21/11/53 to Tina Elvira Zasilli from Sora Frosinone.
    We have a small amount of other information but it relates to his time in France.
    We are trying to find any information on Candido as he died when my husband was very young and he has no history of him.
    Thankyou in advance for any information you can find for us.
