Hi VMennona and Welcome to the Forum. Could this be your grandfather?

Possible WWII Draft Card for Vito Mennonna
Born 24 Mar 1892
Birthplace Potenza
442 East 117 St. NYC
Wife Catherine
http://img151.imageshack.us/img151/9499 ... wiijr1.jpg

Name: Vito Mennona
SSN: xxx-xx-xxxx
Last Residence: 11779 Ronkonkoma, Suffolk, New York, United States of America
Born: 24 Mar 1893
Died: Mar 1976
State (Year) SSN issued: New York (Before 1951 )

And your grandmother?
Name: Catherine Mennona
SSN: xxx-xx-xxxx
Last Residence: 11779 Ronkonkoma, Suffolk, New York, United States of America
Born: 23 Feb 1894
Died: Dec 1973
State (Year) SSN issued: New York (1973 )

I also located a 1912 manifest for Vito from Muro Lucano wife Caterina Cardillo in Muro Lucano, and one for Caterina in 1913 joining husband Vito Mennonna in NYC at 117th St. I can post if you do not have these records. Let me know.

If these are your grandparents both born in Muro Lucano and married there, you could write to the comune and request their birth and marriage records. I would request integral copies of these records since they contain more information than extracts. Here's the address of the comune.

Ufficio dello Stato Civile
Comune di Muro Lucano
Via Roma 39
85054 Muro Lucano (PZ)
Italy

And here's a link to an interactive letter translator for your request.
