My GGF and GGM are both from Recale and I am trying to request their Birth certificate Extracts, but I can't seem to find an address where I should write to. I found the website for Recale: http://www.comune.recale.ce.it/html/default.htm but it doesn't have an address on it!
I have requested the Certificates via the emails listed on the site, but have gotten no response. Can anyone help me find a physical address to write to in Recale to request BCs? Thanks for any help!
Did you have any luck with the above mailing address? I sent a letter requesting birth information for my Gr-Grandfather several months back but I haven't heard back. Having read the article on this site about the research conditions in Italy, I'm not really surprised.
Icannuli, the turnaround time for my request was 2.5 months. Which is a lot better than some states here in the U.S. do for vital records requests. Pennsylvania, for example, takes about 4 months to receive a Death Certificate.
Short term loans on the microfilm cost $7.50 - they are sent to your local Family History Center (you'll have to create an account and set your local Center in your account settings) and the film will remain there where you can view it anytime the Center is open for 90 days from when the film is shipped - and they guarantee at least 60 days at the Center. Shipping normally doesn't take 30 days though so you typically will have about 3 months with the film.
Extended loans mean the film will remain at your local Center until it gets called to another location.
