I'm soooo happy!
Yesterday afternoon I received the "Certificato di Stato di Famiglia Originario" for two brothers of my husband's great grandfather, Vincenzo Tallarico, from Verzino - Italy!!!!
I reeeeeaaaally wasn't holding my breath on getting the documents as I figured with the little bit of info I knew, I probably didn't stand a chance of getting a response! LOL
The two documents have been uploaded to the family site, in case anyone wants to check them out: www.raicesonline.com/Tallarico.htm
I'm still smiling from ear to ear
Thanks of course to three very helpful people who have guided me and/or have given me the little clues to go on in the right direction
: Trish for finding the unknown -till a few months back- siblings of Vincenzo. Riccardo, by giving me advice on how to proceed with the requests and Nuccia for being a stinker *whap!* and making me send for the requests already! and for helping me with what I needed to say when writing for them... Thank you, thank you!!
And last, but certainly not least, a huuuuuge thank you goes to miss Emmy for obtaining documents that finally linked my husband's great-great grandfather (Peter Sharp) to his family back in Scotland. She even found the birth registrations for his siblings! Just awesome, awesome all around! Thank you very much for being such a sweetie and for helping me solve this part of the puzzle!
I've added the finds to the family site, as well: www.raicesonline.com/Sharp.htm
I'm very glad I've found you all. I love this forum!!!
