Postby PaulaMT » 07 Jul 2007, 18:09

I would like to write a letter to possible relations in sicilly.... I pulled down a list from www.paginebianche.it of names and what appears to be addresses.

this is a sample...

Agria Agata
90135 Palermo (PA) - Via Alia, 8

____________________________________

Is this the way to address an envelope going to Sicily?

Also would like help in translation if possible... Freetranslation.com is ok but not Sicilian.
_____________________________________________________________

my name is ________. I am doing family research and trying to locate any relatives of our family that still reside in Sicily. My mother's name is ____________ Dob________ her parents were ____________ DOB and ______________DOB . Imigration year _____________ . Her Fathers Parents were _________________ and _____________ . Any information that you can provide would be appreciated.

By the way, Sicilian is a dialect. Since Sicily is in Italy you should write the letter in Italian.

The address is correct, but "Via Alia, 8" should be for first, before the CAP and the city.
