    I am looking for records of Andrea Mariani born 22 Feb 1889 in Provencia deAquila, Marano, Italy & lived in Triggiano. His immigration papers say he was born in Bari but I’m not sure that is accurate.

    Also his father Carmine Mariani & mother Philomena Desideri Torzi same provence listed but I have no other info on them

    Also Andre married Palma Domenica Annunziata Luzzi born 25 Mar 1888 & her parents were Francesco Luzzi & Maria DeSantis DeJacimo Luzzi
    They may all be from the Provencia deAquila Marano Italy

    I am trying to find information on Antonio Leogrande and Angela Ressa who were married in Triggiano on Sept 21, 1918.and any descendants. I found they did have a child, Michele that died May 7, 1923. I am trying to find if there were any other children and what happened with Antonio and/or Angela. Antonio is the brother of our great grandfather who came to the US. We believe Antonio came to the US once or twice but we are unable to find any information about him ever remaining in the US or Angela coming to the US.
