Hi troopscott,

We've been so busy looking for records of your family that we forgot to welcome you to the forum!

Since you have a record (Birth certificate?) for Augustine Tobia that shows his town as Monteliascone, you may also want to contact the city hall in this town. This site provides the address to write to & also an email address.

http://en.comuni-italiani.it/056/036/index.html

Getting additional US records that show his town of birth will also verify town information (birth records of his children, naturalization record, ss application, church records).

Keep us posted. There are LDS films for the town of Calatafimi, but not Montefiascone.

Good hunting!
