I received my own little surprise yesterday..Riccardo was able to obtain the Family Story Certificate for my Great Grandparents..something they said would take forever since I didn't have enough information!
I'm not sure what he said to them but I have the summary in my hands. He personally waited for the fax at the Post Office near his home at 7 am yesterday morning to get it and emailed it to me! He also was able to obtain my Grand father's Military Records and Draft Cards for me from Italy as well as my Great Uncle's Draft Cards. Of course, the people at Ardore Comune have probably blocked my email address and are refusing my letters by now..I drove them all nuts, especially Riccardo by requesting all these different records. Surprised Riccardo is still talking to me!
Here's the link to the file..
