    Hello,

    I have reached a dead end trying to trace my grandmother’s family. My grandmother was born in Sant’Andrea in 1887. I have found my great grand parents marriage certificate through Family History Center microfilm but have not bee able to find any further information. My great grandparents were married in Sant’Andrea in 1883. I would like to write to the parish church but see that it is not easy to get a response. What do you suggest I do next? Is there a genealogist in Sant’Andrea that I can contact to help me with my search?

    Thank you for your help.
    Diane
