Grottaglie - Vital Records

Postby blujay » 06 Dec 2008, 06:39

Hello,
I was told by my grandfather that my great-grandfather, Ernesto dell'Aquila was born in Grottaglie, TA (Italy) in Sept 1884 and died in New York City in Mar 1947.
I have written a letter (in Italian) to retrieve the extract of his birth but I cannot find an address for the Ufficio dello Stato Civile in Grottaglie. There is an address for the Ufficio dello Stato Civile in the city of Taranto. I have read that vital records were sent to the capital cities of the provinces at some point. My dilemma is whether I should send the letter to Grottaglie or Taranto or perhaps both?

Thank you,
blujay

I have read that vital records were sent to the capital cities of the provinces at some point.


I could be wrong but I heard this only happened before 1865 or so. Can someone clarify this for us?
