Is their anyone that can give them a call and get me the marriage record for Don Giambrone and Josephine Lazzara they were married April 10, 1903 in Bivona. Also I am looking for the birth record for Josephine Lazzara born in 1885 and her mother and father and siblings. Her parents where James Lazzara and Rosalie.
I know you already e-mailed them, but perhaps you can just write them a letter with your requests and send it via snail mail. Make sure it is in Italian. www.circolocalabrese.org has some good form letters. I would advise, however, to limit your requests to one or two documents if you want a response. I have never telephoned for documents; always requested via post and always received a response.
You may want to contact Ricbru or Sunaj on this board. They have a business which obtains these types of documents, if you do not want to do the legwork yourself. However, for me, it is personally rewarding to do the legwork myself. Good luck
