I would like to write to the Archivo di Stato di Napoli for my gggf's enlistment records.
I have emailed a bad online translation but received no response. I believed he was from Padula because there is an entry for him on familysearch.org, but the Archivo di Stato di Salerno responded quickly to my email and told me they could not find him in their records.
My problem is I have 4+ unique names for him, so I can't use a basic form letter and would beg for any assistance anyone could offer to specifically ask for his records to be searched.
1894 Naturalization - Michael Valiano
1900 Deed to Brooklyn home - Mikal Valando
1900 Census - Michele Valiante
1910 Census - Michael Valiando
1920 Census - Mike Valinado
1930 Census - Michael Valiendo
1946 Death in Brooklyn - Michael Valiando
He came to the US ~1880, so he should have enlisted in the conscription in Italy from what I understand.
Most of the children used Valiando on their marriage certificates, and that is the name that "stuck" until today.
Can someone recommend a short letter in Italian that I can write to:
piazzetta del Grande Archivio,
Asking to search for Michele Valiano / Valiante / Valando / Valiando born 1856 in the province of Napoli?
Thank you very much in advance... With the help of this board I have gotten everything I have needed to, but I can't make the jump to where he was from in Italy.
