Seeking Marsala Polizia Infomation

Postby Jim2814 » 11 Jan 2010, 18:37

My grandfather's brother was a policeman in Marsala in 1914. Does anyone know how I can obtain his service records or any other information from the Marsala police? His last name was Lentini. Any information would be appreciated.

Perhaps you could send an email to the Municipal Police and ask their advice. See this page for email addresses.

Marsala is a large comune, there is a good chance you will find someone in the police department who can read English.

Therefore, assuming that you cannot write in Italian, I would suggest that you send an email with Subject = "Richiesta di informazioni" (Request for information) and then begin the body of the email with, "Mi scuso ma non parlo italiano." (Excuse me but I do not speak Italian); then continue on in English keeping your sentences short and simple.

In Italy there are is anenglish website concerning the Italian State Police which you may find informative and helpful.

Go to www.poliziadistato.it/scrivici and select english from the top rim and then adminstrative and logistics. Currently there are 5 different police organizations but may have been differently constituted in Marsala in 1914.

The archive address is Polizia di Stato, Piazza Vittorio Veneto1, 91100 TRAPANI, Sicily. Their e-mail address is uffgob.tp@polizia di stato.it
