I recently went on a U.S. government site that had a form to fill out in order to obtain genealogical records from Italy as long as you know the Comune and Province to send it to. I filled them out the forms but it does not state if a fee is required. I do not know what to do? I was going to send return envelopes but does anyone know how much it would cost to get birth, marriage, or death record?
Welcome to the IG website Most communes don't charge for records but you want to send your request in Italian. Italian have their own stamps so you cant use US postage it doesn't work it cost about 1.60 Euro to send a letter from Italy to the USA The Archivio di Stato charge most of the time for each copy of the record you request What towns are you requesting for and for what years? There are a lot of records online and on film from familysearch
Thank you for responding. The towns I am requesting information from is Manocalzati. The earliest date that I was able go back to was the 1820's. Where online can obtain the records? I was a member of ancestry but was not successful finding records from Italy. How do I go about ordering films from familysearch? Thank you again for your assistance.
