Yes, That is the correct family - I am trying to find out more about the family left in Italy. Stefano was born 5/8/1877, and I believe he did live on 20th St then. Thank you for your help I hope to hear from you again.

Hi Anne,

To trace the family in Crognaleto, you can order/rent the films for the civil registries of this town, done the LDS Church (Mormans). These films are for 1809-1910 & include birth, marriage & death acts.

Here is a link to the available films.

Here is a link to locate your local LDS-Family History Cneter.

http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Library ... et_fhc.asp

And a link to a guide on obtaining these films @ your local FHC.

Hope this helps. Good luck in your research & let us know if you have any questions or need anything else.

There is Facebook group for Cesacastina. It had about 140 members in 12/2008. Good source of information for anyone gathering information about this lovely village. The postings are in Italian.

There is also and English language site dedicated to the town.
