Hi and welcome to the forum,

Can you be more specific about what information you are looking for? Italian records? Do you have all the US records you need? Can you give us first and last names, approximate birth or immigration dates, names of spouses and children, etc. This will help us to help you search.

Here is a little info about lama dei Peligni.

Haven't found the other town yet.

Sorry , the other town should read Calvi Risorta. Great grandparents were Francesco Leone and Guiseppa Zona.

Can you provide any additional info? What records have you obtained so far? Posters need to know if you are seeking USA records or Italian records as stated by Misbris.........if USA records, what state did they reside in? We have a great team here, but they need to know what information you are seeking....... :wink:

For starters, there is microfilm available for the towns of interest.
From this great resource, you can search birth, marriage and death records.

Thanks for the reply. Ellis Island lists my grandfather as Costo instead of Casto.

So that members do not duplicate the records you already have, can you tell us what information or records you do need??
