    My Grandfather, Angelo Pilla was born in Monteroduni on November 12, 1892. His father’s name was Giovanni, and I think his mother’s full name was Maria Assunta Silvestri(?) He immigrated to the United States about 1909, I have a copy of his Naturalization papers.
    Are there any records in Monteroduni, and how can I get a copy of his birth certificate?

    Thank you,
