Hi Little Shea.

Here is a link for Piaginebianche ( the white pages for Italy) to get the town correct.

http://www.paginebianche.it/index.html

Also before you send a letter or phone the correct people you want to make sure you have all the information you need. Persons name, date of birth , town born in. Mother and fathers name will help a great deal.

And here is another website for you. It has all sorts of "form Letters you can copy and use to get the wording correct for the letter.

Me again. Here is the website for Ellis Island to search for the ship records of your Great grandmother. ( If she came over). The site is free to use.

Hope this helps.
