But if you already tried to contact Italian Offices, maybe you already learned that dealing with Public Administration expecially from abroad can be difficult (or better…very difficult!).
This for different reasons:
– Many officers can’t speak English (expecially in small villages)
– Officers usually are quite busy so it’s very rare they reply in a timely way to the requests they receive from abroad.
– Officers are not required by law to conduct genealogy researches in the old registers. So, if you have not an exact date (for example the exact birthdate of your ancestor born in Italy) it’s very likely that noone will search for the record you need for your application and you will waste your time waiting in vain for a reply to your request.
To solve these very common problems, we can be of help with our team of local experts .
