Hello,
I, too, need to request birth/marriage certificates from Palo del Colle. What do you recommend the quickest way to do this would be? I was thinking of sending a request by email, but the commune's web site seems to be down indefinitely, so I don't have an address. I guess I could try faxing... JCSM, you mentioned you may have more info?

Thanks so much.
:)

Palex,

I would write a letter to the comune at the address Joyce posted above.

Here's a link to an interacitve letter which you can use to request records. Make sure to include a copy of some type of ID like your driver's license, a self-addressed envelope and one or two International Reply Coupons depending on how many documents you're requesting. Some people have received documents without including an IRC but personally I'd include one. I prefer a 9 x 12 outer envelope and a 6 x 9 self-addressed return envelope.

Let us know if you need anything else, and keep us posted on what you recieve.

Best,
Biff

Thanks Biff,
I sent them a fax, but will also follow up with a letter as you suggested. I was hoping to also follow up with an email, but I still cannot find any electronic contact for the commune of Palo del Colle. Does anyone have this info?

Thanks again!
:)

Palex.

The title of the person in charge of the archives is L'Ufficiale dello Stato Civile. Usually that person or his/her department has an email address like the following.

servizidemografici@........

I've also looked for an official town site and have been unable to find one which I find incredible for a city of about 20,000 inhabitants. I did stumble across this site on the town however.

Best,
Biff
