We are travelling to Ittaly for the first time and found out that my distant relatives were from Montella, Avellino, Italy. Rosario De Simone (D.O.B October 7 1866) and Great, great Grandmother was from Serino, Avellino Italy Maria Michela Manzo. Rosario is the son of Rocco DeSimone and Maria Carmina Tordela - presumably from Montella.
We have found out that some records have been lost but would like to go to the towns to visit the church they may have been married in (Serino) 1896 think.
Will we be able to find the church from 1896? Will these towns be accessible by Train from Naples or a bus? Will we be able to get around the town with limited Italian?
Any help for us Canadians in search of family roots? Any etiquette tips will help.
