document request frequency to Italy

Postby legnoduro » 20 Mar 2009, 21:22

Ciao a tutti,
I am requesting my grandparents' marriage certificate and my grandmother's
birth certificate from the same comune. I understand how these offices are often very busy processing requests and I don't want to appear rude by making both of these requests at the same time. Would I be better off requesting one document now and then mailing the second request after I have received a response from the first? What is your opinion or experience with this?

Thank you,
Joseph

Hello, Joseph

If you know your grandmother's birthdate, they should be able to locate her birth record fairly easily, and if she was married in the same comune where she was born, her birth record should contain a marriage record annotation which will facilitate locating the actual marriage document.

So, I'd suggest you ask for both records at the same time. When you get a response with the records, make sure you mail a thank you note to the person who sent you the documents.

Thank you Biff. The thank you note is a great idea.

I agree with Biff. I requested the birth certificates along with the marriage certificate and received them at the same time.

Buona fortuna!

I am thinking of asking my cousins to obtain my grandparents birth and marriage certificates. What specifically should they be asking for; i.e. what format/certification, etc will be accepted/required for dual citizenship application?



will the copy of the marriage certificate I got from my dad suffice?
