New to forum and looking for Giuseppe or Salvatore Maida birth date

Postby Unvanecessary » 15 Apr 2016, 00:15

Hello from San Francisco, California!
I am looking to gain dual citizenship, and I'm just starting the daunting process.
I know that my great grandfather Giuseppe/Joseph Maida(twin to Salvatore/Salvador) was born in 1871 in Maida, Catanzaro province and arrived on the SSROMA(separate from Salvatore who arrived 5 days prior).
My grandfather Nicholas Maida, married to Concetta, was born in 1908 in NY, NY.
I'm looking for exact birth dates as well as the easiest way to obtain records in order to start the process.
Any and all help is much appreciated!
Thanks so much,
V
