Grand Father and Great Grand Parents

Postby jay gulbin » 15 Apr 2011, 01:51

In the area of Arquata del Tronto, Ascoli Piceno my great grandfathers name was Lewis Laurie and was born in 1882. He died in 1946 in West Virginia. His parents were Vincenzo Lauri and Filomena Santolini....I am guessing they were born around 1850-1860. How do I look up information from this area. I have been to the official site but I can not read Italian so I don't know where to begin.

Thank you, that was very helpful. Any idea how much postage costs to send a letter to Italy? I have never done anything out of the states?

Jay--I recently mailed a letter to Italy and the postage was just under a dollar. Go to the post office and ask for an air-mail stamp to Italy.

Good luck.
