Did you send request in form letter in Italian language which contains all required information needed to make request.

You might want to re-send request with form letter form www.angelfire.com/ok3/pearlsofwisdom/it ... tters.html and if there are a few euros in your wallet you may wish to send that along for a tip since poorly paid clerks do their research as an end of day duty. Dollars are hard for them to cash for their coffee fund. =Peter=

You might want to include this phrase in your letter to the Mayor if you don't receive a response in 30 days (well allow 2 months from overseas)! Assuming, of course that you have a date. If not then research is required and I don't think they are obliged to perform that for you.

Vorrei chiederLe, ai sensi della legge 241/1990 sul diritto d accesso ai documenti amministrativi, se può gentilmente interessarsi a questo caso, affinché io possa ottenere una riposta entro un tempo ragionevole.

When I wrote to my town, I incuded a 10 dollar bill. I would get results in 2 weeks. I sent for one thing at a time and each time included the 10. I had the proper names for the ancestor plus the exact date.

I once sent to the same town, with a timespan of a few years, they wouldnt search and they sent back the 10 dollar bill.

The Mayor's name is Salvatore Masaracchia (Sindaco.
http://www.comuni-italiani.it/082/052/amm.html The address is on this site.

The phrase, very politely reminds him of a law which says you have a right to a response within a reasonable period of time, and asks him to 'interest' himself in your case.

I am sure he will!

Hi Bob
How about sending an email. If you go to the comune web site you will see at the top right hand side 'Scrivi ' If you click on this you can send an email directly.
I did this when I was after info and I got replies ok. It must be in good Italian though!

Good luck

Joy

Hi Bob,

I am replying to 2 of your posts, hoping to find you!! The other post was old, from 2006, so I was not sure if you would be able to see it or not. So, I thought I would post it also, on a more recent one.
___________________________________________
OK...I think you are Bob Rock right? I am convinced after 2 posts that we are somehow related. Let's see if our info matches. Or at least comes close.

I too am researching and not finding much on Ancestry.com for the following people related to me:

Antonio Raccuia (Tony Rock) who married Carmela Mary Glaviano. Carmela's mother was Antonina Sulla and father was Nicolo Glaviano.

This is what I have been able to find on Ancestry.com and from a letter written in 1981 by Bert Rock. This is what he remembered. (Some dates are still in question, but it is a start.)

Antonina (Ann) Sulla and Nicolo(a) Glaviano (who was well off in Italy) were married. After they got married Nicolo lost everything. They had 3 children. Tony, Rosa and Carmela.

After losing everything Nicolo worked in coal mines. He eventually died in a mine cave in.

In March 1907 (?) Ann brought Tony and Rosa to the US. I believe she either came with or met her brother Nick (not sure of full name) Sulla. She went to St.Louis Missouri. I believe this was their address: 2016 Horifore (Horiford) Dr/Pl. St. Louis, MO.

Carmela had to stay in Italy due to bad eyes. She stayed 1 yr. with her Aunt and 1 yr. with her Grandmother.

In March 1909 Carmela arrived in the US. She met up with her family in Missouri in early April 1909.

Carmela married Frank Daugento and had daughter Jennie (Jane) 12/7/1911 born in Missouri.

Ann Sulla's brother Tony Sulla lived in San Jose. He sent for Ann (his mom), Carmela, her husband Frank and Jennie in 1912-1913.

When they arrived they lived on Lenzen (near Coleman Ave.). In 1914 they bought a house at 489 Vandome Ave, San Jose, CA. In 1913-1914 they had second daughter Anna (Annie).

Frank Daugento died on I believe 2/8/1919, possibly of the Spanish flu. On the 1920 census Carmela is listed with the 2 girls in San Jose, as head of household.

At age 25 (1915?) Carmela married Antonio Raccuia (Tony Rock), born 12/5/1885 in Montalbano Elicona, Messina Sicily. Tony was 35 at the time. He had originally immigrated from Italy to Buffalo, NY in 1900. He moved to SJ in 1919 (?). He took in Jennie and Annie. In addition they had 2 sons. I am not sure of their birth names but they went by Bert (born 7/26/1921) and Nicholas Joseph Rock (born 5/19/1924).

Annie died at 14 (1928?) of appendicitis.

Tony Raccuia died 4/10/1944 and is buried at Santa Clara Mission Cemetary.

Jennie went on to marry Gino (Geno) Dellamaggiore and have 2 daughters. Kathy and Francie Ann (spelling?).

Bert went on to marry Ernie and had 3 sons and a daughter. Robert, Michael, Ronnie and Terrie. Ronnie passed away from bone cancer.

Nick went on to marry Phyllis Adeline Gregory. They had 1 daughter and 2 sons. Patricia Rock, Richard Lawrence Rock and Timothy Rock.

Richard Rock went on to marry Debbie Lynn Luksich. They are my parents. I am Marilyn Vinciguerra (Rock).

Carmela died 7/3/1981 and is also buried at Santa Clara Mission Cemetary. She still lived on Vandome Ave.

I would love to get in contact with you and see where you fit into all of this...I hope you get this and are able to reply!

Sincerely,
Marilyn

I don't know why you can't get your hands on Euro. All banks I have dealt with have them or will order them.
