Some church records are on microfilms which can be rented at a local family history center or found online. For others, you may have to write to the parishes in the town in question, but there is a shortage of priests and some administer to multiple parishes, even in various towns, and do not have the time to do research for you. What town are you talking about?

There are only 3 churches listed and each has a telephone and address so why not drop each the same letter a and include a $5.00 bill and return addressed envelope...write in simple English sentences and see what happens. If a birth record cannot help you and only a baptismal certificate will then give it a shot. You never know! Peter

Push comes to shove and you cannot obtain what you want then you might want to consider a highly recommended Utah researcher Kathy Kirkpatrick at www.gentracer.com
She is an itinerant genealogist who travels every few months to Italy to perform hands on researches. Peter
