I am trying to find more info about my great grandfather who was born in 1861/1862. He didn't stay in the United States but Ancestry.com reveals he was back and forth between here and there. From what I understand he is burried in one of the Cemeteries in Rosarno where there is a cannon ball hole from one of the World Wars?

Two last names are Gargano and Saffioti.

My great grandfather from what I heard was possibly a Sea Merchant. My grandfather, and his siblings were fully immigrated here I believe but I didnt find a long lost 3rd cousin in Gioia Tauro, Calabria Italy. Last name Loprete DeDe?

Can someone point me in the right direction as to where I can obtain his birth and death certificate?

You have several options - you could write to the town hall in Rosarno directly. If they reply the records with be sent to you free of charge. Another option would be to write/email to the Archives in Reggio Calabria directly. They will definitely reply but will request you to send euros (which you can purchase at an airport or maybe an international back if there is one near you) before sending. You can also try renting microfilms from the LDS - this does cost a few bucks per film, the wait time varies and you only have a few weeks to view the films by appointment only before they return them or you put them on extended loan (additonal fees apply). My suggestion - for now try writing to the Town Hall and see what happens.

Are you fluid in Italian? Form letters are available if you need them.

Most commercial banks in the USA have euros. If they don't have them on hand they can order them.
