I have recently found out that I am eligible for Italian citizenship throgh descent (jure sanguinis) and am looking to get more information on my great-grandfather - Arcangelo Giampaolo. He was born in 1897 in Villetta Barrea, Abruzzo, Italia and then emigrated in 1906 to the US via Naples and New York.
Does anyone have information on how to contact an archivist in Villetta Barrea or how to request a birth certificate from that commune in Italy?
Or, if anyone has any related family information and would like to link up, that would be great. He married Camilla Celedonia (she was born in the US) but her parents emigrated from Italy as well.
