    Hi there! I emailed you the other day, but I have an additional question: I would like to know the names of the siblings of my great grandfather, Giovanni Parise, and verification of his parents’ names. Here’s what I know: his parents were: Bartholomeo Parise (born circa 1860) and Constanza (no known last name). Giovanni was born on April 9, 1883. Can you tell me how I can find this information?

    Thank you!
