Good morning Carlo.

If you can give as much detailed information that you know it will enable people to better assist you.

If you can give spouses full names for Carlo, Francesco and Santo and birthdates. Also any childeren of these 3 and years of birth if you know them or can make a close guess.

Did Francesco or Santo ever come to USA to work? If so, do you know what state they worked in etc.

Any additional information you can give would be helpful.

Regards,
Elizabeth

Hi Carlo,

This is a link for the LDS church, family history library

http://www.familysearch.org/eng/Library ... t_fhlc.asp

You can order microfilms for your families town in Italy. The films will contain marriage records, birth records, deaths etc. You should be able to find your great grandparents mothers and fathers etc.

Make sure to search to find an LDS research center near you. You're only allowed to view the microfilms at a center.

I hope this will help get you started.

Let us know how your search goes.

Best of luck
Elizabeth
