Hello, I am trying to find out information about my great grandfather Raffaele Gilardi and his wife Antonia Gilardi nee Nassa. According to what I could see on ancestry.com the couple were married in Italy before coming over to the United States. I know they were from Caserta and I am pretty sure they lived in San Angelo D'Alif.
I have no idea who their parents were or when they were married to each other. I do know that Raffaele had a brother named Domenico. I also saw that Raffaele listed on his World War I Draft Registration Card (filled out in 1918) the name Giacontina Gilardi as his nearest relative and her place of residence as San Angelo D'Alif. I do not know if this was his mother or maybe a sister still living in Italy.
After settling in the U.S. Raffaele lived in Bristol, Pennsylvania. From what I saw on ancestry he made numerous trips back and forth to Italy. He was born about 1874 and died in 1945. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated!
Again from the site Ancestry.it the birth act of Rafaele
