You have to write to the town of origin or go to the nearest Mormon church Family History Library and request the microfilm for that town\'s vital records. If you request microfilm from the FHL then you will have to rent the microfilm and go thru the reels. Please let me know what you decide to do. There are form letters for documents in italialian if you wish to go that route. Peter

The records are handwritten when you get back to eary records. Bring a magnifying glass and be prepared to read italian script. There is no quick way. Frankly if your intrested then sit down and come up with research obectives and then take it one step at a time. No one is going to do the work except you or someone you hire to do the research. (No I don\'t know who they are or what they charge!). Peter

you might want to consider wirting to those persons in the town of origin with the last names that are of interest to you by going to www.paginebianche.it and put in the surname in the first line and the town in the third line and click cerca. If there are names of interest write in very simple english and include a self addressed envelope and a dollar for stamps and ask them in VERY SIMPLE ENGLISH if they are related to you. Peter
