    Hello there, found your site today. I’m researching the Cetrano name in Civitaquana but also the Calderone name. (Not a very common one there). My immediate question is with the death cert for Daria Calderoni who was married to Felice Centrano. Felice was born in 1870, I have that record. But i’m not sure when he died. After 1910 for sure. Daria was born in 1873, and died 30 Mar 1956. I have a death notification that was sent to Villa Santa Lucia but I would really like to get a scan of the actual document in the 1956 books. Is that something you can assist with?. I*d like to know she was widowed and also very interested to know where she is buried.
