I am looking for information on two of my ancestors, Giovanni Marcoguiseppe, born in 1863 and his son Michael, born in 1890. I'm having trouble finding their birth records from Italy. Any help would be appreciated.

I do have the marriage record that you attached first. I just can't find the birth records. Thank you again.
I hope it wasn't too much trouble for you. I may ask you for more information in the future.
