I am trying to find my Italian heritage from Lavello, Potenza, Basillicata, Italy. I believe my great grand dad, Mauro Zappella (b. approx 1860) may be buried there along with his son, Antonio (b. 1883, died approx 1961ish?). I have looked on BillionGraves and FindAGrave without luck. I would be grateful for any suggestions. Thank you. :)

I just found my grandfather's birth certificate in Italy, and therefore found my great grandma's name! Thank you for your kind help. :)

Thank you so much for this. Yes, the first Antonio Zappella listed is his son.  I would love to learn more about his father Mauro and who his mother was. I am thinking I could find into through finding his gravesite in Lavello. (Antonio returned to Italy and died there)

The first thing you should probably do is e-mail the commune office where he is buried. Perhaps they can help. Make sure it's in Italian and if you need to you can use Google Translate to help. Good luck!
