Looking for village of Di Monda or Casesse near Naples

Postby adimonda » 02 Jul 2013, 21:03

Hello! I'm looking for my great-grandparents, Leopoldo Di Monda and Philomina Casesse. Records show they immigrated from Naples to NYC in 1913, but I can't find their birth town. I'm assuming they are in the Naples area. The only indication on the papers I have says "cash ??dun" which I'm assuming is an error! I'm trying to get Italian citizenship and need their birth town. Any information would be fantastic!
