I am seeking ANY information on my great grandfather and his family. He was born in Catona,Reggio Di Calabria in 1879. His name was Antonio Micalizzi. His father was Francesco, and I believe his mother was Giuseppa. Thanks!

Welcome to the Forum.
We would be happy to help you look for records for your great grandfather and his family.
So we don't duplicate your research, what records have you already found?
Did he live in the US? Or are you only looking for Italian records?
Thanks, vj

Hi, and Thanks for the reply!!
I have found some documents here in the US. I have a profile on Ancestry.com, and have done extensive research here in the US, but I am interested in the Italian documents. I know he came to the US between 1904-1911. I have no idea about his life before that in Italy. ANY help would be great!!! :)
