    Hello – I my genealogy search for ancestors in Sersale, I just discovered that my great-great grandfather, Giuseppe Giovanni Schipani was not born in Sersale, but rather in Rocca di Neto around 1867. His parents were Luigi Schipani and Maria Scaramuzzino.So far, I have not found any record of his birth on Family Search site or I do have records of his marriage to my great-great grandmother, Grazia Carolina Torchia as they married in Sersale. I know that Giuseppe came to Sersale after his birth with his family but do not have anything else. Not too much information about Rocca di Neto with regard to genealogy records.Do you know where I might be able to find more birth records in Rocca di Neto? Thank you.
