Parish Records

Postby scorpione » 10 Aug 2006, 09:29

I wrote to Italy and the Italian authorities were kind enough to sent me the records desired.(Ufficio Anagrafe). I did not write in English nor did I use the common Italian transcripts available in various locations. Perhaps my tortured Italian caused them to be sorry for me. My question:

In view of the reported difficulty in getting Italian parish records what would you advise? Should I write directly to the parish priest and if so should I include some money for his time and postage etc.Or, is there another way. Finally what would you advise me to do in this regard when I get to Italy next year?Has anybody found an effective way to get help from the parishes while in Italy? Is there an etiquette that should be followed? Thanks.
