Did this couple immigrate to the US? If so, do you have an idea of when and/or where they settled? I have just begun helping a cousin research her Bussi family (from Canneli) and will be glad to keep them in mind as I am looking.

You can write directly to the Comune of Varsi to request the birth record of Luigi. As for marriage record, we don't know Angela's maiden name and marriages were usually held in the town of the bride with a record being made in the town of the groom. If Angela was also from Varsi, that will make it easier. If you're lucky, there may be a notation of the marriage on Luigi's birth record which will give you her name and place of marriage. You might want to request a search from the comune, but try to give a close approximation of the date.
