Needed: Certified birth certificate from Balestrate, Palermo

Postby Katherine16 » 10 Mar 2012, 00:55

Ciao a tutti,

I have read through the posts of others who have asked about requesting official, certified birth documents from Italy, but still don't understand what the process is. I am trying to order a birth certificate for Antonio Nasca, born around 1909 in Balestrate, Palermo, Sicily. I saw one poster suggest filling out this form: http://www.conschicago.esteri.it/NR/rdo ... OMUNE1.pdf, and others who did not indicate that form would be necessary.

If I do not use that form, is it possible to fax a request to some office in Palermo? What payment, if any, must be included?

Thanks in advance!

Grazie mille,
Katherine

I used My Italian Family and sent for both my grandfather and grandmother's birth certificates. I received them both in about 3 weeks time. Both were from Balestrate. Balestrate has a website where you can contact them. It has both addresses and phone numbers.

Hello,

Thanks for your response! I was excited about trying My Italian Family until I saw the price. Do you know if it's possible to just contact the Balestrate government directly to request the document?

Thanks!
