Relatively Speaking - Giuseppe Longo

We'll find out how this impacted Giuseppe and his family.
The Brick Wall - Giuseppe Longo!
In a surprise turn, Justin's brick wall is also his Life Story choice - Giuseppe Longo. However, it's Giuseppe's parents and siblings that are proving hard to find, thanks to conflicting sources of information, and archives that are hard to view.
Was Giuseppe baptised in Cefalu or Capachi, Sicily? Maybe you can help Justin unravel this mystery that allows him to trace another generation back.
