Hi: I am looking for my family on my dad's side. I can go as far as my great great grandfather

His name was Giovanni Fontanella (1) and he married Maria Grazia Capalbo.
They had at least one son: Genaro Fontanella who married Felicia Nigro on November 26th 1898. He was 22 (so he was born sometime in the year 1876. She was 19, so born 1879.
They had one son: Giovanni and sever daugthers.

Now I am looking for Giovanni Fontanella (1) who was born in Rossano

Thank you!

Giovanni Fontanelli and Maria Grazia Capalbo had a daughter named Teresina Achiropita Fontanella who was 18 as of July 29, 1876 for her marriage publication record. So she was born abt 1858 meaning her parents married earlier than that. Since records for the earlier time period are not currently online, you will need to search for Giovanni and Maria Grazia's death records to get back further in time with their ancestries. Giovanni was born about 1832, according to his age of 44 in her marriage publication.
