    My dad was born in Castelnuovo di Conza. His birth certificate is old, yellow, and torn. We are trying to trace our family and have family members planning a visit to Italy. Of course, they want to visit here. There is a handwritten number at top right of birth certificate, 66421. Does this help? The following is our info:
    My dad was Mario De Luisi, born February 14, 1930 to Colomba Desiderio and Nicola De Luisi

    Is there a way to get a legible copy of his birth certificate, and also to get any information on their families. Any addresses, etc.
    Thank you
