Requesting Copy of Actual Marriage Douemnt NOT Extract

Post by Timmwill » 26 Feb 2011, 12:08

I wrote to the Ufficio Dello Stato Civile of Ogliasto Cilento inquiring about the marriage certificate for my grandparents. What I received was an "extract" of the information. Very basic information, but a great start. I was trying to obtain a copy of the original certificate with ALL the information, etc.

What language shoud I include in my next letter to make sure I'm requesting the actual marriage certificate. What is the Italian wording I should use?

Thanks

Include a photocopy of your passport and say how you are related.

Birth/marriage/death photocopies of original registry pages are called: Copia integrale dell'atto di Nascita/Matrimonio/Morte

Birth/marriage/death handwritten or computer-generated extracts are called: Estratto Per Riassunto Per Atto Di Nascita/Matrimonio/Morte

Would it be good habit to include a copy of your identification regardless of the type of document that you are requesting?
