Vital/Census Records  

Province of Firenze

When writing to Italy for records, be sure to be as specific as possible, including full names, dates, and the specific record you want. Do NOT include a lengthly description of why you want the documents. If you do not have specifics, you should hire a professional researcher, otherwise your request will probably never be replied to.
