Need address of comune for Acquaviva & Gruno Appula

Postby grandamn » 11 Oct 2009, 14:38

I believe it's Acquaviva delle Fonti and Gruno Appula, is the commune the community or the "town hall"? My grandfater was from Acquaviva and my grangmother was from Gruno Appula.

Also a sample letter for obtaining birth certificates would be much appreciated too. Thank you.
