Dear Ms. Baglivi,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
The Social Security SS-5 Application does record the date and place of birth, but the entry for Rocco Cavico in the Social Security Application and Claims Index only notes “Italy” as place of birth so there may not be any additional detail on the SS-5 form. If you are interested in pursuing the SS-5, here is the website you can utilize to place a request. This blog post includes an image of an SS-5 Application where you can see the information fields you might expect to find on Rocco’s form.
The New York Public Library wrote this blog post about researching Italian ancestry and there is a “Further Reading” section at the bottom that provides a list of books that may be useful in your search.
We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck on your research!

Thank you Becca for your help. I am so frustrated that I am not even finding the name Cavico any where in Italy, even using Antenati. The blog post you cited gave me a few other ideas. Thank you.
Did you ever get an answer to your request for info re: Rocco Cavico Sr.? If not, I may be able to help. He is also my GGF. Your grandmother Marie and mine Anna were sisters. Please let me know. Best regards. Alan.
