What was your Grandfathers given name? Do you know when they left Italy? Did they marry in the USA? If so, do you know where they settled?

If you know of any siblings, please list.

Take care,

For the town of Caserta, there is microfilm that you can order at your local Family History Center. The microfilm is from 1809-1929. It costs about $3.50 to rent it. Here is the link for Caserta.

For Picinisco, the microfilm only goes from 1809-1865.

I hope this helps.

Other than providing ship manifest, census information, occasionally marriage information, there is little that can be done here to personaly locate your ancestors. General questions can be asked and answered, or perhaps to point you to a useful website. You have been given the two most effective ways to research your surnames, sending to the town of origin for birth, marriage, death or family certificate. Or locating a Lds
center near you and renting the microfilm, which you can then trace all
family as far back as the dates will allow. There are a number of other tips
to help you locate information.........if you could be more specific as to what it is you want, I am sure someone here would be more than willing to help.
