I need some help researching my family. My great grandfather Antonio Giordano (b.1867) and his wife Maria Raffaele Tardugno (b.1871) came to America from Marsico Nuovo, Basilicata in 1898, settling in NJ. I have no information on his or her parents and am not sure where to look. Are marriage records or birth records available for this time/ region? How would I obtain them? Thanks for any and all help!
