Obtaining birth certificates from Sinopoli - Monterosso

Postby jo123 » 09 Nov 2009, 13:12

I have been researching my g grandfather Cosmo Monterosso, and have been looking through ship manifests for some clues to whether he had brothers or sisters.
If I was able to get his birth certificate, would it have that info on there. I have a cousin who is living in London at the moment and is planning on travelling to Sinopoli, my g gradfathers place of birth, next year.
Do I need to write a letter in advance, or does he need to provide anything to get copies of these documents?
What other kinds of documents would they have and where exactly would he need to go to get them?

Thanks
Josie

I would recommend purchasing the book "Italian Genealogical Records" by Trafford R. Cole, it's a fast, easy read......this book gives you a complete breakdown of all records to be had, where to find them, information to be found within these records and request letters. Invaluable resource to have!
