This is definitely the right family, I had a feeling the name was Cafaro prior to emigration. Is there any information regarding Pascuale and Rose's parents or lineage in Salerno and Nocera Supecia? That is the info I'm looking for. Thank you.

the town is NOCERA SUPERIORE (right spelling); and it are no online possibilities for to know abt the parents of Pasquale and Rosa...
but because you have the birthdates, you can request the birth certificates, so you can know the parent's names, writing a regular mail to:
Ufficio di Stato Civile
Via Matteotti 15
84015 Nocera Superiore (SA)
Italy


or writing a email to:
comune @ pec.nocera-superiore.it

NO SPACES PLEASE
email subject: Ufficio di Stato Civile-Richiesta Certificati

To be able to send an email to the above address you need to have an email address certified by the Italian government "Posta elettronica Certificata (PEC)".

I tried to find a regular email address for Nocera Inferiore but I was unsuccessful.

I can probably just send it by regular mail... I take it that a yahoo.com email account is not officially a certified mail route in Italy now.
