    Hello! My name is Graziela, I am doing the genealogy of my family. I managed to find my grandmother’s great-grandfather. Their children were born in Nocera Superiore (I have the birth certificate of their son), so I imagine they were born there as well.
    I would like to find marriage and birth certificates of these ancestors.
