birth records vs. birth extracts

Postby bkworm10 » 08 Nov 2010, 20:19

Accettura Italy has been extremely prompt in writing back to me with the birth records of my ancestors. In fact, they even respond to email which makes it even quicker! However, they are sending me birth extracts and not copies of the actual record. Is this the norm? Or do I have to do something to request the actual copy? Or perhaps the actual copy would not have any additional information (like address, time of birth, etc...). Basically they just send me date of birth, name at birth and parents names. I am using the website

http://www.circolocalabrese.org/resourc ... civile.asp

to request the birth certificate.

I plan to send away for the marriage records now - I was planning on sending away for the marriage certificate, specifically. But what is the "State of the Family Certificate" and would that possibly give more information.

For instance, my g-g-grandparents had two children that I know of - one born in 1883 and the other born in 1873. I'm sure they had more children rather than just the two and I would love to know who they were. Would the "State of the Family Certificate" provide that information?

I would be happy to wait and order the microfilm, but I am still waiting on the microfilm I ordered over a month ago for Accettura, Italy 1873 and since Accettura is very quick, I would rather go that route.

Thanks, Annette

The document you are getting is most likely an "Estratto per Riassunto per Atto di Nascita" (or Matrimonio or Morte).

You can instead request a "Copia integrale dell'atto di Nascita" (or Matrimonio or Morte). This would be a photocopy of the original record and does generally contain more information of genealogical interest.

I am requesting the following:

Vi sarei molto grato se poteste spedirmi l'estratto dell'atto di nascita di Teresa Sarricchio, in carta libera.

How would I rewrite that to request the copy?

Thanks, Annette

A "copia integrale" is not necessarily a photocopy of the act and an estratto per riassunto is generally sufficient both for dual citizenship and genealogy purposes, see my post http://italiangenealogy.tardio.com/Foru ... tml#113160 to have a detail explanation.

So what do I want to request then? I plan to get the marriage certificate of my g-g-grandparents and would like to get all annotations included. How would I write that in Italian?
