a note from town of Ariano - translation help, pls

Postby dmt1955 » 13 Apr 2013, 22:26

Below is from an email I just received from Sig. Mincolelli from the Town of Ariano. I ran it through Google translations -- rather confusing results. I would appreciate a translation to make sure I do what is necessary / what he is asking.
I am so excited about this....thanks so much. Donna

He starts out by saying that he has finished doing the research, in order to get you the certificates that you requested. He asks that you forgive him for the wait for these.

On Monday, he is sending you everything that he has, including a copy of the act of death of your great grandfather, and the extract of the marriage record of your great grandparents.

He then says that, if you want, you can send him a postcard, and then he says, "this is my address" and he gives you his mailing address.

Personally I don't really understand why he would ask you to send him a post card, unless this last part has a totally different meaning that I am missing. Maybe he just wants a "souvenir" from the U.S.

thanks erudita....that's what i thought it said, but got confused as to why the postcard but nothing about payment. i also had the same idea that maybe there is a meaning is this i is literally lost in translation.

He definitely doesn't say anything about paying for the records that he is sending you or for the postage.

Yes, the town official was a woman but I hadn't bothered to check the signature. I was only concentrating on the content of the message when I did the translation. Thanks, Livio.

thanks livio!

i followed the form letters given on this forum re: requesting certificates and paying for copies/postage. this town official went beyond what i requested in my letter. given that AND that she mentions nothing about money, do you think it would be rude or insulting to offer to reimburse her for postage or costs of copies again? i would like to acknowledge her generous effort.

thanks for your thoughts.

livio,
my first thought was 'offer again.'
my second thought was 'although a good intention, maybe it would not be good form.'
my third thought was 'better to ask.'

thanks for clarifying!
