Serre, Italy

Postby Normandie » 28 Apr 2011, 23:19

Does any one know much about this Southern Italian town. It is in Campania and Salerno. It is not large. Some ancestors came from there. Their last names were Pepe and Cornetta. My cousin is going to visit there. Is there a main Church or several? She wants to check if any marriage or baptism. Also checking to see if any relatives still there.

I notice on their site, the mayor is Palmiro Cornetta.

There are 25 persons listed in the Italian Phone book with the surname "Pepe" in the comune of Serre.

And 28 listings for "Cornetta"

If you decide to write to one or more of these persons...

Thanks for the sites. I will tell my cousin. Since she leaving next week no time to write.

Since I don't read Italian, couldn't read the site information on the town. If any one could give me the gist of it, would appreciate. Thanks again for the help.

As to churches, the Italian yellow pages shows just one actually in Serre:

Parrocchia S. Martino Vescovo
Via Plebe San Martino
84028 Serre (SA)

It is imperfect to say the least, but the Google translator can help with Italian language websites: http://translate.google.com/translate?h ... e.sa.it%2F

Thanks so much for translation and name of Church. My cousin is also going to Altavilla Silentina which is town near Serra. We know our Great Grandparents born there and married there. I have their certificates which I ordered. However, trying to find Church they went to. Can someone give me names of Churches there? She will probably check them out too. Thanks so very much. I know she appreciates the help as I do. I think it so wonderful she able to travel to Italy.

I don't want to throw a wrench into the works, but since you opened the door:

As you know, Serre is a comune located in Provincia di Salerno, Regione di Campania, Southern Italy

However, there are several places in Italy whose "first name" is Serra:

Comune di Serra d'Aiello, Provincia di Cosenza, Regione di Calabria, Southern Italy

Comune di Serra De' Conti, Provincia di Ancona, Regione di Marche, Central Italy

Comune di Serra Ricco', Provincia di Genova, Regione di Liguria, Northwestern Italy

Comune di Serra San Bruno, Provincia di Vibo Valentia, Regione di Calabria, Southern Italy

Comune di Serra San Quirico, Provincia di Ancona, Regione di Marche, Central Italy


Meanwhile, churches in Altavilla Silentina (http://www.paginegialle.it/pgol/4-chiesa/3-Altavilla%20Silentina):

Parrocchia S. Antonino-S. Egidio

84045 Altavilla Silentina (SA)
