Birth Certificates/Atti di nascita

Postby blueyed1 » 21 Nov 2008, 10:45

I'm looking for the birth certificates of my great-grandparents, both from the province of Bari. My great-grandfather was born in Grumo Appula in 1897 and my great-grandmother was born in Palo del Colle in 1899. Any help that you could give me would be great.

In addition, I'm in Europe now so I was going to go to Italy to get these documents, so if you know where to physically go that would be great to.

Go to www.nonsolocap.it and type in Grumo Appula on top and clickon the town name when it come up with the zip code, and the province (BA) and that will give you the address under municipio where you will write a letter to the Ufficio di Stato Civile, Comune di Grumo Appula (put in zip code#), (BA), Puglia Italy.


The letter has to be in Italian so go to www.angelfire.com/ok3/pearl;sofwisdom/i ... tters.html and since the service is free you might want to put in an enclosed envelope with your address and put in $5.00 for the clerks who search as an end of day duyt and are poorly paid.

Do the same for Palo Del Colle. =Peter=
