Hi, I would like to request birth certificates on my grandparents. They were both born in Corleone, Italy. I am also trying to get information on their parents and any siblings they may have had. I only know of one for sure. How do I ask for that when writing to Italy? I remember seeing form letters on this website a few years ago, but I cannot locate them. Any information would be appreciated. Gracie.
If you are familiar with the Latter Day Saints(LDS) and the Family History Centers, here are some church records online you might want to look at from Corleone, http://tinyurl.com/6fqx8sm
They also have a large number of film containing "Births, marriages, deaths, banns; supplements to births, marriages, deaths, and miscellaneous documents from the civil registration office in Corleone, Palermo, Italy". http://tinyurl.com/6zwjgc2
Hi Here is a letter I wrote to Corleone to get my grandfather's birth record. It took about about a month to get a reply back. I included a International Reply Coupon but it was returned with the doc. Hope this helps.
