NEED HELP LOCATING LUIGI FRANCALANCIA ANCESTORS IN TORO CAMPOBASSO

Postby lwfrank » 20 Jul 2015, 05:08

​I am attempting to locate my ancestors in Toro, Campobasso

My grandfather, LUIGI FRANCALANCIA, came to America in 1906 from Toro. He was born 25 March 1889. A photo is attached.
His parents, MICHELANGELO FRANCALANCIA and MARIA ANTONIA TROMBA, did not make the trip to America. ​
He came with his brother NICOLAMARIA FRANCALANCIA who was born 8 December 1885.

I would like to hear from any relatives or friends of LUIGI FRANCALANCIA. I am very interested in learning about and making contact with my family in Italy.
