Yes, I can verify that the above mentioned immigrants are my maternal grandparents. Salvatore travleled to America first leaving his wife and childfren behind to find a home for them.

Later, my grandmother and their children came to the US to join him. My mother is the youngest of the family, Carmela.

You can trace the families by ordering/renting the LDS-FHL films for the civil registries (birth, marriage & death acts) of this town. The years included in these films are 1820 through 1919.

There is also a 1681 census available.

Let us know if you need further information about the films or if you prefer to write for records.

Hope this helps.
