Potenza, Basilicata Help!

Postby ashelyk » 23 Feb 2016, 00:52

Hey everyone! I was wondering if anyone could help me dig up some information on my 3rd great grandfather and his family. His name was Giovanni Battista Marchitello born 14 March 1864 in Rapolla, Potenza, Basilicata, Italy. His parents were Maddalena Maiorano and Michele Marchitello. That's all the information so far unfortunately. :(


I would appreciate the help! Thank you!
