I am looking to get an official record of my GGF's Baptismal record. I want to use it to bolster my jure sanguinis application due to some discrepancies in my GGF's middle name when in the US (he used his baptismal name as a middle name).
I found a letter online in Italian and played around with it to fit what I need, but my Italian isn't perfect. I'm trying to ask for an official copy of a Baptismal Record and am providing all the info I have on the baptism and offering to pay if I have to. Does this letter even make sense? Thanks.
Rev. Parroco di Santi Giovanni e Reparata
Il mio bisnonno, BARONTNI Giov. Dino, Paolo, Luigi figlio di Leopoldo Barontini ed Ida Lippi, fu battezzato a S. Giovanni il 15 Agosto 1897. Le sarei molto grato se potesse spedirme il suo atto di battesimo.
Alla presente accludo una donazione al suo parroco.
Yeah, the website I was looking at said to do that to increase the chances of them sending the document. Do you think I can do without sending money? I have the exact date of the baptism, so no one is going to have to search around in the archives. I actually have a snapshot of the handwritten baptismal record, but I want to bring something official to the consulate with me.
Any idea on if there is a standard amount they are expecting? I was thinking $20.00 or I guess 20 Euro. Is that too little? Also, I suppose I'll have to include a self-addressed stamped envelope or some way for them to mail the document to me.
