What is the best way to request family records from Italy

Postby mdvukas » 28 Jun 2010, 23:20

I'm am ready to request family records from Italy. I understand that they must be at least 75 yrs old before they are avail. for public viewing.

Both of my maternal grandparent's families are from a small village called "Pietransieri" which is a part of Roccaraso. I would like to know what records I should request first. I've seen reference to something called a "family certificate". Can someone tell me what it is, who may be on it and how to possible find one.

I am also interested in requesting a few death and birth certificates.

Would greatly appreciate any input.

Since letters should be written in Italian, here is a form letter generator site:
