Hello, I am a new user and would like to know if there is anyone in Italy that would be able to help me discover extended family and also see if I and my sons could obtain Italian citizenship through blood right.
My grandfather was Pietro Manganelli from Novi Velia Salerno Italy born June 29, 1888. His parents were Antonio Manganelli and Anna Maria Frasca. I think he had 7 brothers and sisters named Felice, Angelo, Rosina, Raphaele, Anella, Domenic, and Luigi. I know he served in Italy army x 2 years and also fought in WW1 1917 to 1919. He married my grandmother in Toronto, Ont, Canada (Mary Adelia Allison) on May 19, 1920. They had 4 children (Anthony - deceased, Dorothy - deceased, Maria - deceased and Madeline - alive). I am the daughter of Dorothy.
I have spoken to Italian consulate in Toronto and do not find them very helpful. I did request his Italian birth certificate but when I received it his surname was mispelled as Mangarelli. Is here any way to correct this?
I would appreciate any help anyone could give me. Thank you
