I am trying to find out my Grandfather's house address and the name of the church in a picture I have taken from his house. He was born in 1876 and left for the USA at age 22 in 1899 and went to Davenport, Iowa USA. I would also like to know his birthday and the names of his parents. His name was Antonio Corsiglia. I think the town is Nurme, Neirone, or Acqua di Ognio. I can email the picture taken from his house to anyone if it does not go with is note and it shows a church. Please let me know if anyone can find this information.
Welcome to IG! You can upload the photo here or use a host site such as ImageShack.com. I did edit your post to remove name, address, telephone number and email contact.

Here http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neirone you can find pictures of the churches in Neirone. The Church of San Rocco in Ognio is quite similar to the one you posted. You can also take a trip there with Google StreetView.

Hi Marty, That must be him and his parents.. Thanks so much. I never was taught the Italian language, so I need to find someone who can read the document. I saw many pictures using Google Earth and Google Street view, but could not really see the house where the picture was taken from or the address of the house. Google Streets did not go up the hill to the North of the Church.
