Would anyone be able to point me in a direction where I could find information on my grandfather - Antonio Borgia. He was born on November 11, 1894 in San Fratello Sicily. I believe this is in the province of Messina. He was a soldier in WW1, was injured in the war, received several medals and later in life moved to the USA with his family. Any help would be greatly appreciated - thank you

For instance the birth record, marriage record , war medal receipt records? thank you again - also - is that y9our website .. linked on bottom of your email.
Thank you Marty - I sent an email yesterday to an office in Sicily. Will wait to see what comes back. Fingers crossed. Any ideas or suggestions on war records? I know my grandfather received several medals and would love to know which ones they were. George
