US $70 processing fee to request each individual Birth, Marriage, Death and Certificate of Citizenship Records. Additional copies are $5 each for the 1st and 2nd, and then $15 each for the 3rd copy or more. REMEMBER: The Italian Consulate will not return the Italian documents you submit with your application. You can buy one or more additional copies if more than one family member is applying with you or to keep as an heirloom.
US $150 processing fee to request an individual Military Record. Additional copies are $50 each.
US $100 down payment to request a Historical State of the Family Record (Stato di Famiglia Storico). Even though there is no standard procedure, some Town offices can charge up to an amount that can reach $15 to $20 per name listed in the document. If a family was composed on average of 10 names or more, it would cost you approximately: $150 to $200 additional processing fee per document. PLEASE NOTE: State of the Family Records started to be recorded before the 1900s in the North of Italy but only after 1930 in the South of Italy. This is because the office in charge of issuing such documents called Anagrafe was created after 1930; by then your Ancestors may have migrated away and no information is available on their family.For more information on our Research Options please visit our Research Section.
When your request is forwarded to the appropriate government office, your credit card or PayPal account will be charged or your check cashed, depending on your form of payment.
DISCLAIMER: My Italian Family does not guarantee the result of the request that will be sent to Italian sources. In acting purely as an intermediary, we still rely on the work of officials who may or may not cooperate. Records may be kept in separate archives, may have changed location, or suffered damages, thus reducing the chances of success. The most common reason for failure is the result of a customer asking us to request an individual document to the wrong town of origin. Please remember: all family documents in Italy are ONLY maintained in the EXACT town.
We do not offer refunds. In the event the Italian Town Hall notifies us that the record or records could not be found, you may want to perform some additional research here in the U.S. to make sure the information you provide is correct. For more information, please visit our Research US Sources Section.
Additional copies: If you have ordered more than one copy but the Italian Town Hall only sends us one, you can place a new order and we will credit the amount of the additional copy or copies you had originally ordered.
