Looking for any information on this name/Luigi Selvitella and Celesta(Esther)Caggiano
I think are from Taurasi. They immigrated to Boston,Mass. about 1883. Would like to know more about this family in Italy.

To locate Italian records and identify the parents and grandparents of Luigi and Celesta, you will need to know the EXACT place of birth for them.

Looking at the arrival manifest for Celeste (who is traveling under her own surname as was the custom), there was no "last place of residence" listed.
I was not able to locate an arrival for Luigi, but I did locate this US Naturalization Index card. It gives the date of naturalization and the court.
You might try to contact the US District Court in Boston and provide the information on this card to see if they can locate his Declaration of Intent and Petition to Naturalize. These documents should have his exact place of birth :-)

You may then request birth and marriage records from TAURASI (if that is indeed the comune of birth/marriage)

Address:
Ufficio dello Stato Civile
Via del Convento, 1
83030 Taurasi (AV)
ITALY
