trouble finding italian birth certificates.

Over 25 million Italians have emigrated between 1861 and 1960 with a migration boom between 1871 and 1915 when over 13,5 million emigrants left the country for European and overseas destinations.

Did you get any response at all from Naples? I waited about three months for my gf's birth certificate, but it did come through.

You can write directly to Naples and request these documents yourself at no cost / just the cost of postage.

Comune di Napoli
Servizio Centrale Civile
Ufficio Corrispondenza Valori
II traversa privata, Parco Quadrifoglio
80126 Napoli
ITALY


Email might also work: stato.civile@comune.napoli.it (remove the spaces)

You can find form letters to use for this purpose here http://www.circolocalabrese.org/resourc ... /index.asp and here http://www.angelfire.com/ok3/pearlsofwi ... tter3.html

Don't worry about it before you make the attempt on your own. Naples will respond. Do as Carmine suggests and request it yourself.

Do they respond quickly to email? and will it be annoying to have two services contact them then request it myself ? I know thats a paranoid thought but I ask because its a different culture all together. :?

Carmine and Mlr did either of you have your citizenship recognized? if you guys posted it up I would love to read about it . you both seem to know a good deal and People could probally benefit from it !

thanks again,
Dave
