    Is there anyone who does church record research in Corleulto Perticara?

    Hi,
    I have a cousin Celeste Maddaluno Holly who reads Italian and has already located several marriage certificates of my grandparents in Corleto Perticara. She and I are related to the Maddaluno, de Bona, Pallotta, and other lines in Corleto as well as the Urbino family in Potenza. My grandparents changed their name from “Russo” to “Rossi” upon immigrating to the USA.
    My goal is to find church records showing the names of Celeste’s and my common ancestors.
    Best regards,
    Glenn Rossi
