That would be wonderful!!! I am looking for my great grandmothers birth record. Her name was Lena Motta. She was born in Rome on 30 july 1894. Lena's mothers name was Rita Ravetta and her fathers name was Ercole Motta.
Thank you so so much!!!!!
Just to clarify: baptism or birth record?
Secondly: are you sure Lena is correct spelling? Of maybe is the way you pronounce it? Maybe Lina?
Thanks, I'll do it as soon as you give me these details.
I was requesting my grandmothers birth record.
I have sent all the requests to the Comune di Roma. Via Petroselli 50 - 00186 Roma.
I am not sure of the spelling I know Lenas garndmothers name was Maddalena. But I am really not sure!
Thanks a million!!!
Let me know if you need to know any thing else!

I'll try to see what can I do for you.
offices are olready closed or so it seems, but I've called anyway.
Have you tried this way?
http://www.evisura.it/certificato_di_nascita.php It's an online form request for a birth certificate that you can pay directly with credit card.
I've written to ask if they can do it even with old archive records. Let's wait their answer.
Re: www.evisura.it This is a company that obtains certificates from any commune for 42 euro each, usually for legal purposes. Since the certificates are valid for only 6 months that would imply they are fairly current.

This is ridiculous. Ive been waiting almost a year, I dont even see why I have to pay that much. Its a comune with 354 families. How hard is it for some one there to look a BC up in such a small place? I will keep the link though. It will be my last resort
Have you taken a run at getting the documents from the Archivo di Stato in the capital city of the state in which the comune is located? Theoretically, they are supposed to have a duplicate copy of the vital records which are maintained by each of the comunes which are located in the state, and the copies they issue are reportedly accepted by Italian consulates located in the US.
It didn't work for me personally, as the Archivo di Stato in my ancestral state replied that they didn't have birth records for the specific year I requested (probably destroyed during the war). But it's worth a shot if you haven't attempted it yet.
Actually, Im not sure,lol. Ive sent so many requests to so many towns and archives for records for the consulate and just plain,old genealogy that Ive lost track. But now that I think about it, I dont think I requested for this particular document through archives. I guess its worth a try right
