Limatola and Vinciguerra family

Postby dunnbv » 10 May 2009, 00:51 grandfather, Biagio Vinciguerra came to America from Limatola, Italy in 1901 on the ship Sicilia with his cousin Francesco Cervera his cousin Cervero in Amsterdam, NY.Biagio's father was Vincenzo who came over in 1898. We went to Limatola and could not find any Vinciguerras. Any ideas on how we could find some of our relatives. My father always told me that his family was still in Italy but we couldn't find them. Any thoughts?? Of course we could not speak Italian so we were at a disadvantage. Thanks for any help.
