Birth Certificate HELP!!!!!

Postby dnod » 11 Feb 2009, 18:40

hello good people I am in need of some assistance on obtaining a copy of my birth certificate. As I was not born in Italy but am a citizen and hold an italian passport through parentage, I have been told by the Italian consolate that Ufficio di Stato Civile del Comune may be able to assist. Does anyone have any idea how i could get a birth certificate, as that really means nothing to me , thanks in advance.

Ufficio = Office
di Stato Civile = of Civil Status
del = of the
Comune = community/town/village

Contact the office of civil status in the city/town/village in which you were born or last resided in Italy. A useful guide can be found here.

I was born in Zimbabwe which getting a birth certificate now is totally out of the question. Being registered in Posina Vicenza (and I dont live in Italy so I cant just walk into the office in Italy) any ideas of what website I could go to and make an application or contact. Any ideas greatly appreciated many thanks.

This is the website of Posina (VI)
http://www.comune.posina.vi.it/

but there is not e-mail, only a phone number.

While we are at it do not forget to send your request in Italian and use a form letter which you will find in www.angelfire.com/ok3/pearlsof wisdom-form-letters.html =Peter=

When writing to Italy, best to provide a copy of your Identification, along with your request (in Italian as Peter stated) as well so they will release the information to you.
