No answer from the Parish Priest

Postby kangaroo_ch » 21 Apr 2011, 20:56

I have written twice in the past 12 months to the parish priest asking for some information. But so far i have not recieved an answer. Should i now try writing to the bishop in Novara or should i just forget about it? :?:

Letter:
Reverendo Parroco,

Mi chiamo Anton Dacomo, ed abito in Berna, Svizzera.
Sono alla ricerca della mia storia famigliare, gradirei, se le fosse possibile, richiedere il suo aiuto.

Cerco l'atti di nascita del mio antenato,
Placido Giovanni Martino Dacomo nato verso 24 Feb 1856 e di suo padre e madre. Non conosco i loro nomi.
Vorrei anche l'atto di matrimonio di suo padre and madre.

Vorrei chiederLe se, per favore, puo' essere cosi' gentile da ricercare quest'informazioni e trascriverli per esteo sui certificati parrocchiali di nascita e di matrimonio che cortesemente Le chiedo di inviarmi.

La ringrazio fin d'ora per la Sua gentilezza e premura. Vorrei mandarLe un piccolo contributo alla parrocchia, ma attendo che Lei mi scriva come posso effettuare questo pagamento.

Distinti saluti

Maybe there are no records. Many have been lost in wars, fires, earthquakes, etc.
The Diocese would know. You might write and ask them if records for that period exist and where they are located.

I looked up the address is this where you been sending the letters to (phone number 0323 56117)
http://www.paginegialle.it/pgol/4-chies ... ROCE/3-BEE
Parrocchia S. Croce
3, Via Pio Xii
28813 Bee (VB)
Italy
Like Ann says maybe you should include this in your letter
Se non avete i registri corrispondenti, potete fornire l’indirizzo dell’archivio dove in cui i registri possano essere trovati?
If you do not have the necessary records, could you provide the address of the place where the records can be found?
Are your dates accurate or should you be giving the phrase dal 1854 fino al 1857?

If the priest does not have the records, then they usually don't exist except perhaps in Rome and some other places where the Diocese have gathered anything over 70 years (in Rome) in one place to preserve them.
I would start with the Diocese, they will know where the records are.
