My father's parents, Dante and Pia Gazzola were from the northern region of Italy, a town or region called Piacenza. They've been deceased since the 1940's (ages 96 and 92 respectively) How old is/was your Grandfather? In my search I have found it quite difficult to attain a birth-record. Birthday records were basically recorded in family bibles or were remembered by word-of-mouth. Reply please. Ciao.
