Hello...I am trying to research my grandfathers family in Italy. I believe they were from Jelsi. I would like to try to find his birth records and the names of his parents and if there were siblings.. I have found Ellis Island manifests for him and my grandmother. I have extended family here in USA and would like to know how our decendents are related.

Thank you for responding to my post. I could use some direction.

I have since found out that my grandfather was originally from Naples.
His name was Patsy Eletto born 4/3/1890. He married my grandmother Julia DePietro (born 1895). He came thru Ellis Island first, and later returned to Italy to bring over my grandmother and their 2 children Teresa and Louis. They settled in Norwalk, Connecticut. We have found extended family here in USA with surnames Martino (Baltimore, Maryland area) and Matteo(Cleveland. Ohio area) thier relatives were from Jelsi area. Would like to know my grandfathers history. Any siblings or perhaps info. on his parents. How do I begin to find birth records in the Naples area? Thank you. Any quidance would be appreciated.
