I am so exicted. I received a second letter from the Professor in Baia e Latina. He sent infomation about my great-grandfather, great-grandmother, and grandfather. Plus two books he has personally written about the history of Baia e Latina.
All of this is in Italian, but I was able to find someone here to translate the letter. The books are full of pictures, which is wonderful.
The Professor wrote "I know a little English, however, not enough to be able to communicate with you in writing"
Do you think it would be OK if I wrote to him in English anyway??
I also had asked him in my previous letter if there was a fee for his services and he did not respond to that. Should I send him money anyway and if so, how much would be appropriate.
He has been so kind as to research all this for me. How do I show my appreciation?
Would it be OK if I asked him for copies of documents he translated to me?
I want to do the right thing, whatever that may be. Your advice would greatly be appreciated.
