Hello and welcome! :-)

It seems from your details above that you already know where your grandparents were from (Orsara di Puglia, Foggia).

How can we help you?

You can write to the comune and request their birth and marriage records by writing in Italian to:
Ufficio dello Stato Civile
Via XX Settembre
71027 Orsara di Puglia (FG)
ITALY

You should write in Italian...Here are links with form letters...

Send no money, but do include a self-addressed UNSTAMPED envelope.

Is that your Family Tree (Zappanti and Alfonso Family Tree) on Ancestry?
[i]
It lists Leonardo Pagano/Amelia Schiavoni and their 9 children.

It also lists Amelia's parents...Giusippi Schiavoni and Maria Michela Polvi...
And parents of Leonardo...Gaetano Pagano and Carmela Aquaviva...

Clarification of the limited "word of mouth" information from family members is my goal. Brothers, sisters, spouses, children, parents,grandparents....generations back as far as possible is my goal and
hopefully finding family links to those who came to USA and those who
remained in Italy. I have bits and pieces, limited resources, but eager to explore and link to the past. THANK YOU SO MUCH OrsaraPagano

May as well get properly organized (if you aren't already) and read the following at your leisure so that we can all go to the beach.
