#1: Please translate my reply Author: mazzie74, Posted: Mon Sep 05, 2011 8:56 am ---- Hi,
I had paid for research from the florence state archives regarding several birth certificates from towns in Lucca Province.
They have replied to me, and I have used google translate to try and fathom what they are saying, but it isn't that clear to me.
Can anybody translate their reply for me, and let me know what they are wanting from me next?
"Buongiorno, le scrivo in merito alle fotoriproduzioni che lei ha pagato in Archivio di Stato.
Le avevo già scritto nel mese di luglio.
Ho ripreso di nuovo la richiesta ieri ma il fotografo trova serie difficoltà nelle indicazioni delle filze.
Le filze che a lei interessano dovrrebbero essere la filza 415 ( o 1415?), 1452 ,1458, 10331,3444.
A ogni filza corrisponde un fascicolo e un atto tranne che nelle filze :10331, atto 76 e f. 3444, atto 130 a cui manca il fascicolo.I volumi però contengono molte pagine.
Volevo sapere se lei ha mai visionato gli originali dei volumi e se mi può indicare dei riferimenti ( se non di pagina) almeno dei contenuti per avere dei riferimenti in più durante la nuova ricerca.

I already wrote to you in July.
Yesterday I looked again at your request but he photographer has serious difficulties to find the files (filza). The files you are interested in should be 415 ( or 1415?), 1452 ,1458, 10331,3444.
Each file includes a dossier and one act with the exception of file 10331, act 76 and file 3444, act 130 where the dossier is missing. The volumes contain several pages.
I would like to know if you ever saw the original of the volumes end if you can give some references (if you don't know the page number) about the contents so that I have references for the new search.
Frankly speaking I do not understand what he is asking for?
What did you write in your original request?
Basically, i found several reference numbers using the LDS microfilm for Births in Tuscany.
I then applied for the certificates from the Archivio di Stato di Firenze, using their research department.
I think that they are telling me that some of the pages are missing for a couple of the certificates, and I am assuming that they think i searched for them myself at the Archives, and are wondering if the files were there at the time.
I didn't visit the archives though.
Thanks for your help,
