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.

Help--Translations of PA marriage and death certificates

Postby anitapgh » 29 Aug 2011, 04:31

Anyone willing to share their translations of marriage and death certificates from Pennsylvania? I've already spent so much time and money on this process that I can't bring myself to pay for translations. Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Here's a copy of a PA marriage certificate translated, from a few years ago. I removed all personal info. I don't know if PA still issues marriage certificates like this, but it was in paragraph form with info from the ledger, rather than an official-looking form like all other certificates I had. Hope this helps. Nobody in my line died in PA.

Rodio--unbelievably helpful. I can't thank you enough. I'm sure you remember how exhausting this process is. Thanks for making it a bit easier!

Prego, AM. I should add the dates in my translations were written in full, European format: August 30, 2011 would be written as 30 agosto 2011.

Best of luck with your application.
