Need assistance with a letter from Stato Civile

Postby dangli » 25 Jan 2011, 02:18

Hello!

I wrote to the Stato Civile in Lavello for assistance in locating information on my greatgranparents. I received a response back and I am having a bit of difficulty with the translation of it. I am worried I offended the official by sending funds attached. Can someone help me translate the response?

They write;

In uno alla presente proveddo ad inviarLE gli estratti di nascita da lei richiesti.

Le resituisco, inoltre, le due banconote da lei allegate nella richiesta, una banconota da deici euro e una banconota da cinque euro (per un totale quindici euro) poiche' da vari anni ormai, non vi sono piu' diritti da pagare per il rilascio degli estratti dai registri dello Stato Civile.

I need to follow up with them (I only received a handwritten certificate but I was looking for either a photocopy of the original record or a more complete set of information) and I hope I didn't offend them.

thanks for all those who help!

Attached to this letter you will find the Estratti di Nascita richiesti.

I also return the money you included in your request , a 10 Euro's banknote and a 5 Euro's banknote, because nothing is due for Data extracted from the Stato Civile registers.


They are not offended and I believe they sent you an "Estratto per riassunto dell'atto di nascita" which contains all the information recorded in the book register, including the annotations if any.

If you had requested an "Estratto per copia integrale" maybe they would have sent a photocopy...

Livio,

Thank you very much for the reply! I am glad I didn't offend them as I have much more to ask of them.
