I wrote a letter to the town of Frisa in Chieti requesting the birth certificate of my great-grandfather Giovanni Di Fresco (born September 28, 1895 or 1896). I recently received a reply telling me that the record could not be found.
I think that his birth name could be just "Giovanni Fresco" without the Di, and I would like to send another letter requesting the birth certificate for this name. What would be the best way to explain this in Italian? My knowledge of the language is very basic, so I don't know really know how to word it in a simple and understandable way.
