I am having no luck with my father’s mother and her family probably because I haven’t figured out the Italian spelling of the name.
My grandmother’s name was Anna DeAugustine – her name was probably some form of D'Agostino but I have found no other spelling of her name on documents in US.
She was born on January 21, 1891 in Briano, Caserta, Italy (according to my grandfather’s Dominic’s naturalization papers) I can’t find a US marriage record but I think they were married somewhere in western Pennsylvania.
My grandmother’s parents were Frank and Mary. I believe my grandmother had three brothers Peter, James, and Anthony all born in Italy. I have some US census info on these folks but nothing from Italy.
Here is where I need some help. I have found TWO areas in the Province of Caserta named Briano
I have written to the town of Villa di Briano using the address below but never heard anything.
Ufficio dello Stato Civile
Comune di Villa di Briano
81030 Villa di Briano CE
I have a feeling the other Briano might be the correct town but can’t find an address to use to write for records. My guess is I need to write to a larger town.
Any help with the address for Briano records or ideas on how to find info on my grandmother would be appreciated. Thanx
