Province of Lecce
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.
