In the past I have been able to request and receive numerous Extractions from the Comune di Corato (BA). Unfortunately the gentleman who ran the department has now retired. I have sent two written requests to the Office and also sent a copy to the Mayor with no documents or response. I have been told that compliance is required by Italian law.....is there anything I can do or anyone else I can go to. I sent the request beginning in July, 2017.

I have provided both names and pretty specific dates for each person I requested which should simplify the research needed.

Some very small towns are dispensing with the office clerk and having the work done by ??? Not sure how this will work but I doubt it bodes well for researchers.
Pretty specific dates may not be enough.
Filippo Muggeo is a genealogist who lives in or very near Corato. He might be able to help or at least explain. f.muggeo @ alice.it

Thanks Ann....do you know if the town is required to respond (and whether it applies to non-Italian citizens)?

I will email Filippo and ask if he knows the new person at the L'Ufficio di Stato Civile.

Corato is not that small, it has about 50,000 inhabitants.

Maybe I got lucky with the former head of the office --- I met him personally early on so that may have aided his responses ---- he provided at least 50 docs over the years.
