Hi, I am a researcher living in Sora, close to Roccasecca. To visit both in two weeks is possible, to do the research requires organization and an understanding of how things work in Italy. You need the Mayors permission to do a search in many towns. You should request this in advance. You need to know if the records you need still exist (sometimes you have to do the search at the Provincial archives). If they don't exist then you need to search at the church and this can be easy or difficult depending on the priest. My recommendation is to concentrate on one place or to have someone (like me) do the search and then you can enjoy your trip visiting the places your ancestors lived. If you need more information I have an attachement I can send you. email
