Hi Signoretti,

for references this is your previous post:

I can advice you to try to confirm Rome and Novara as birth place because sometimes a person stated the province of birth and not the exact town... and both Rome and Novara are towns and Provinces...
I believe that Roma (town) should be the correct birth place for Ettore and Rita's child :!:
I don't know if you already have this document from Ancestry.com.
It's the passport who was released to Ferruccio/Frank Motta on 1919. He was coming back to Rome for his marriage...

This is the link to the Comune of Rome website where you can find the right indications to request the documents (unfortunately it's in Italian)

on this site you can find the right form letter you should use to make the requests:

Laura~
Thank you so much for your help! I had not seen the passport application for Frank Motta (my great grandmother Lina's brother) before. I have never even seen a picture of him either, so that was really exciting!! I translated the Rome website to English but could not find an address to send for a birth request. Is there somewhere else I could look? I just sent out a birth record request (Citta di Castello) for my great grandfather Egidio Signoretti and am very excited to hopefully hear back soon. The angelfire website is so helpful, thanks for the wonderful advice :D . Does anyone have an address for Novara the town to request birth records? Thanks again ~ Emily
