They are asking you to make your request in Italian and to be sure to include the date of birth.

PS: If not certain of the exact date of birth, you can try something like "circa 1885-1887"

If you are requesting typical birth/marriage/etc documents, there are several online tools which can help in preparing a suitable letter. Just a few:

www.circolocalabrese.org/resources/letters/index.asp (seems to be offline at the moment)

http://www.familysearch.org/eng/search/ ... talian.ASP

Also, two of my own examples in this thread.

Google's translator puts it at, "congratulations for his Italian I will see what is required to send their Chiello G. The Manager"

Which I take to mean, Compliments on your Italian; I will search for the record. Signed, G. Chiello, department manager.

Perhaps Livio will offer a better translation.

John/Livio thank you. I have to laugh. I wish I was that good at Italian right now.

Rosetta stone is working wonderfully though. Johny I used one of the links you sent to me

Grazie Grazie
