Finally, through the hard work of Riccardo I have a birth record for my great grandfather.
Just to have this gives me a great feeling. It has been a long time coming.
Hopefully, I will be getting more records after sending dozens and dozens of letters, crossing my fingers, writing in the right language. All that stuff. Good email addresses, bad email addresses or no addresses at all and having to dig for any kind of address. I am learning both Italian and French through these struggles.
I have a big smile on my face and can share what I have with my family where we once had nothing and now something positive and real.
Thank you to all who have put up with so many questions but to a novice it is worth it. Helped me to dig in the right places and find a wonderful person in Riccardo
who is ever so patient.
