I was wondering if anyone could find any information on the parents or siblings of Angelo Maria MERENDA. He was born May 23rd 1879 in Roggiano Gravina. According to Portale della Storia degli Italiani, his parents were Giuseppe Merenda and Maria Giuseppa Iaconetti. There are 2 war drafts for him. I'm almost finished reading the 1st one (the font is so tiny, I need to use a magnifying glass! Madonna!!)
I know he married his Filomena Iannello (sp?) in 1898. Her parents were Cristoforo Iannello or Iannelli and a Marianna Chickarelli (I believe, unsure of the exact spelling).
Here is the marriage certificate sent to by one of my cousins:
