You may write ti the Ufficio di Stato Civile in Gamberale and ask for Felice's birth act. This document will hold Felice's parents names and hopefully an annotation about the marriage. If the marriage took place in a different comune this would be Angelina's birth town, otherwise also Angelina was born in Gamberale

Form letters to request the acts are available at: http://www.circolocalabrese.org/resources/letters/

The address is

Comune di Gamberale - Ufficio di Stato Civile
Rione Case Popolari 8
66040 Gamberale CH
Italy

You may also try the email: uffici @ comune.gamberale.ch.it (no spaces)

Just a question for you. The manifest I posted of Angela is definitely the wife of Felice. Her last name is Di Salvo ( I believe. ) The manifest was prepared in Italy and that surname appears in Gamberale. Are we talking about the same person?

The name may have changed to De Salvo in the US, but if you are going to search Italian records, Di Salvo is probably the best way to go. :wink:
