Welcome to the forum.....are you looking for US records or Italian records?
What information have you located so far? Can you provide any other details on Vincenzo and Maria?? Year of birth or death? Did they live in US and where? Children?
Any and all details will help locate the correct family and avoid duplicating research already done....that way we don't post several records which you may have already seen..... :wink:
Looking forward to your reply!!!!
