Looking for next steps to find ancestors of my great great grandfather Nicola Ferracci from Petina, Salerno area. He married Maria Cristina Albirosa, b 1834 from the same area, their son Giulio Alfonso Ferracci married Raffaelina Stabile of Palo, Salerno 5 Dec 1900 in Salerno per her naturalization document (NYC). Nicola and Maria Cristina apparently also emigrated eventually, I have record of Maria's death in NY in Nov 1949; family lore has it that Nicola died impoverished in Ohio sometime later, but I haven't been able to find records. He reportedly was recognized for service to Garibaldi. Most of my work has been on Ancestry dot com and FamiySearch, I don't know how to proceed for more info - any help greatly appreciated. I will be testing DNA through Ancestry shortly. Thanks in advance!
