Valletta consist of 3 separate comune (towns/villages having adminstrative and municipal jurisdictions). Send e-mail to info@u nionevalletta.it and ask them as to which of the 3 comuni have relating civil records for your family. If you wish to write a letter in Italian you can modify a request for documents in Italian by going to www.mangeruca.com and sending all three one similar letter requesting documents..Your choice. =Peter=
