I have no idea how to search for my mothers father. I also dont have a lot of information about him other that birthday and death date and name. I dont know if he had any family. Thats really what I am looking for - for my mother. She lost her sister and my grandmother and although she has my sisters and I -- She's feeling a little lost.

Vincenzo Buo/Bua
Born 21 August 1897
Died June 1985

All I have seen is Vieste, Foggia, Puglia, Italy.

Can anyone help or point in the right direction? I tried ancestry.com and got no where fast...other than the ship's log when he came over to the US. Which we matched to his passport/naturalization number.

I've tried familysearch.org as well. Not sure where else I need to go to get some information for my mom.

Vieste is Southern Italy...

You may write to:
Comune di Vieste - Ufficio di Stato Civile
Corso L. Fazzini 29
71019 Vieste FG
Italy

and request for a "Copia Integrale dell'atto di Nascita" (birth act) of Vincenzo. The record will contain his parents' names.

Form letters in Italian can be found at:

www.circolocalabrese.o...s/letters/ and www.angelfire.com/ok3/...tters.html

check out Pagine Bianche:

www.paginebianche.it/r...e+%28FG%29


for families with the same cognome when I searched for Buo and Vieste.

Vieste is a really beautiful little town on the Adriatico; it is also the site of a mass beheading by the Turks after they invaded the town. My cousin showed us a large stone where the executions took place.

It's a baptism certificate (Fede di Battesimo) Released by the Parish of the Saint Sacrament in Viesti on Feb 2 1959.
I undersigned certify that according the register #1, page 223 of the baptized book:
Vincenzo Santoro, son of Maurantonio and of Laura Maria Bua, born 2 Jan 1952, received the Saint Baptism on 6 Jan 195 by the priest Antonio Spolitino. Godfather was Pasquale Ninni
