Cool! Thank you so much for the email and the address! I know that the letter should be in Italian...but if I email them should the message be in Italian?
I have the Atti di Nascita's for the individuals that I am looking for. When I mail them, should I include them so that they can easily match up the records with the death records?
I am looking for a relative that came to the US - but returned to Italy around 1919. I know that she returned to Forno di Rivara. But without an idea of when she died - I could be looking at microfilms a while!
I live in the area and I can tell you that Forno di Rivara was once an hamlet of the Rivara's Comune, but it's a Comune on its own since 3 centuries ago. So you have to direct your inquiries not to Rivara's city hall, but to Forno Canavese (this is the official denomination since 1927).
Here is the link to the official website: www.comune.fornocanavese.to.it .
I had this same question on another thread, and was referred to this thread. SO you live near Forno Canavese? Can you tell me, is there a parish in Rivara separate from Canavese? I am still trying to understand this comune structure. Thanks
