I suggest you to write to Ogliastro civil record office and request all birth records of Antonio Ruggiero and Maria Esposito children
Write your request in Italian, add to your request a photocopy of your ID + an envelope + an international reply coupon, so you are sure they are going to answer you back...

this is the address:

Ufficio di Stato Civile
Via Mazzini 16
84061 Ogliastro Cilento (SA)

or contact Archivio di Stato di Salerno

I hope it helps, bye Riccardo :lol:

Great advice from Riccardo (always)! :)
It's terrific that you have your family's town in Italy.
(some of us have been looking quite awhile so we can write those letters!)

A couple of questions on your family in the US?
Might help with finding some g.uncles & g.aunts in the meantime ...
Thanks, vj
