Geneology getting info from Italy

Postby ray1955 » 20 Sep 2013, 16:55

Anyone share secrets how they managed to get information from Italy. I googled the Comune of a town where relatives were known to be from and picked the Deputy Mayor to get information and who to write too for information. I figure in our day and age of technology I might be able to NOT to have to use he postal system.
OR atleast have a place to start anyone else have any luck or experiences that might help others?

Ray not every town has internet I see Vallelunga has just upgraded their website and might have a problem with their snail mail or reg email you can always fax your request in Italian if you don't want to send it by letter sometimes that's what you have to do
Ufficio dello Stato Civile
Comune di Vallelunga Pratameno
Fax 0934 810023

The town I had a problem with where it rejected was Mussomeli however the one you sent me for Vallelunga has not rejected so hopefully they will get it and respond. I am sure I sent it to the wrong person but maybe the deputy mayor will send it on and copy me or send it back with a reply of some kind. I believe we have exhausted our searches online.
Anything after 1910 (recent) has to go to the Comune I have tried several folks on facebook but not a luck of luck. Most dont want to be bothered but hoping to hit the one person that is into this stuff and will help.

how do you dial that number Marty from a fax machine? just as its written above or are there prefixes to it? I would have to use a fax machine somewhere else not sure if it will go through or will there be a charge?

Thanks, Ray

Thanks, Ray

OfficeMax or Kinkos
To fax to Italy from North America you dial 011 39 then the Italian area code (including the first zero), then the fax number
