    My great grandfather came from Ripattoni, his father and uncle also came from there as well.
    I understand Ripattoni used to be part of Mosciano sant’Angelo, but now it is part of bellante. I am not sure which one would have the birth and death records I am looking for.
    My grandfather was born in 1898 and died here in the US. I’m trying to obtain his birth record and his father’s death record who went back and died anytime after 1918. What archive do I write to? Bellante or Moschino? Thanks
