Question about emailing someone in Italy

Post by krombie19 » 11 Jul 2011, 20:22

When my wife and I were in Italy in May, we visited the town of Montella where her family is from. We spoke with a priest there and he sent us some information. He offered to email it to us, but we asked that it be mailed because we thought we would getting copies of original documents.

Well now that we are back home and I have done some research I have been able to trace the family back to before what records the LDS has. Does anyone have any experience emailing people in the church for records?

I have found a church in the town where I can submit information for an email. I have quite a few people I would like information for. What is the best way to go about asking for it? Would you recommend asking for all the records I am seeking at once? Or ask for a few records, wait for them, ask for a few more, etc etc.

Any ideas would be helpful.

I suggest you email the priest and ask if there is someone in the parish who could complete the research for you (for a fee or donation to the church, make it a healthy one if they come through). Most priests will do one or two but if each response returns another request they soon get tired.
