If you go to www.paginebianche.it put your surname inthe first line and Vico del Gargano int he third line and clcik CERCA for 7 Coppolecchia who are most likely related to you by fullname, address and telephonenumber.
If yu want to trace your family back to 1809 then go to your nearest Mormon church Family History Library and rent out the microfilm for Vico Del gargano for all births,marriages and deaths. The records are handwritten in Italian and go up to 1910 (privacy laws) but your father can tell you about after 1910 anyway or relatives in Vico Del Gargano who will fuill you in. I urge you to buy or borrow the book from your library Discovering Your Italian Ancestors by Lynn Nelson and bring along a magnify glass as well. =Peter=
