In obtaining documents from Italy the service is normally free. Go to www.mangeruca.com for Italian form letters in Italian (with english translation) and send it to Uffico di Stato Civile, Comune di Corleone, Postale 90034, Palermo Province, Sicily, Italy.

Enclose a self addressed envelope with $5-10 US$ ($US1.00=EuroI 60 cents) since the clerks perform their research duty at the end of day and are poorly paid. Wait about 6-8 weeks. =Peter=

Thank you Peter for your response, I will type the form letter and send it out on Monday.

Peter on the form letter that I will be sending for request for Certificates. It said to enclose 10,000 lire.....how much is that in US $. Also do I have to register the mail that I will be sending. It also said to enclose two International Reply coupons. I guess that I can get this from my local post office. Thank you for your help............Mardi

Dear Mardi forget about the Lire and postal coupons sentence. its outdated but doinclude the $5-$10.00 tip as you feel since the service is free.Most people ignore this line and thank you for bringing it up. I must admit that I have overlooked that sentence myself. Lots of luck. =Peter=
