Subject:   Di Somma's in Potenza

I am researching the Di Somma family who lived in Potenza in the early 1900's.

My main objective is to find my Grandfather's birth certificate, and find his siblings. I seem to have a lot of information, but I need to prove it all. My Grandfather was Nino DI SOMMA and I believe he was born in Naples or nearby c1888. His Father was Francesco DI SOMMA and he was a watchmaker who had stores in Naples, Avellino, and Potenza (so the story goes.) Although originally from Monteforte Irpino, the Family lived in Potenza until c 1914. Nino came to New Zealand in 1916, where his brother Ugo was living. Ugo later moved to America.I have been looking for the death certificate of Francesco DI SOMMA, without any luck and I now need to get a certicate of family genealogy. I would also like to obtain Nino's marrige certicate to Bruna Tonelli. I was curious to see if anyone else was researching the same family.
