Hi Andrea,

Welcome to the forum :!:

Here is the address to write to request his birth act (extract). I recommend requesting the extract & not the cerificate, because the extract will contain more information.

Ufficio dello Stato Civile
Comune di Casole Bruzio

Your letter should be written in Italian(you can compose it & then have one of our members translate it into Italian). Also send a self addressed return envelop, a copy of your photo ID (recommend), and an international reply coupon (obtain from your local post office).

Once you receive this birth act, you will know his parents names & approx. age & occupations. You then can order LDS (Mormans) films from your local LDS-Family History Center, to trace his family further back.

Here is the information on the available films: ... ato+civile++

Here is a link to local your nearest Family History Center in Argentina ... et_fhc.asp

I hope this helps with your search. If you need any additional know where to come!

jcsm :)
