Good luck and I'm glad you're making progress. Back when Ancestry had YDNA testing, they had a free search feature. I found a man with the same surname and we determined our connection. We were briefly Facebook friends.

Mike- did you ever find any info?

Mike I am curious if you found any info on your great grandfather? I stumbled upon a “Nunzio Terminella” on familysearch and he was born around the time you were approximating. The info on his birth is from an actual document in Italian cursive- I haven’t taken Italian in years all I could gather is that it discusses his birth and something about paternity- I am guessing Mr. Terminella is accepting that he is the father and this is being notarized? I don’t see anything about a mother. Let me know if you need the link.

If you have not tested autosomally (family finder), consider doing so-it can fill in some of your blanks!
