    My grandmother supposedly came from Castelnuovo di Conza. Her name was Caterina Annicchiarico and she was born in 1891 and came to America in 1821. She also had a brother named Vincenzo. Her mother’s last name was Masi. I believe she had family still there s she used to write to them in the 1960s. She also had a son when she came to America with the name Luigi DiDomenico. Any information you may have would be wonderful.

    My dad was born in Castelnuovo di Conza. His birth certificate is old, yellow, and torn. We are trying to trace our family and have family members planning a visit to Italy. Of course, they want to visit here. There is a handwritten number at top right of birth certificate, 66421. Does this help? The following is our info:
    My dad was Mario De Luisi, born February 14, 1930 to Colomba Desiderio and Nicola De Luisi

    Is there a way to get a legible copy of his birth certificate, and also to get any information on their families. Any addresses, etc.
    Thank you

      Hi Sheri,
