I have talked with Mariangela Fedrignoni, she is nice and she will forward for you the request to the priest of Godenzo di Lomaso (the parish where there are kept the church records of Poia), so when she gets Cesare Formaini bapt certificate she will send it to your address.
Also you can go to FHL and request to rent Poia church records microfilm
I hope it helps,
|By charliemis:...."I forgot to tell you that I received an envelope from the Province of Trento yesterday. [b]The contact that you gave me really came through. He gave me this Mariangela who sent me the names of my grandfather's siblings back in January. She told me then that she only had this kind of information and that she would send my request to the City of Lomaso for additional information. Since I had already written Lomaso some time ago, I didn't expect to hear from them, or her again.|
What a surprise to find out that Lomaso sent Mariangela the records stamped "Gratis" and she in turn mailed them on to me. She sent my grandfather Caesar Formaini's birth certificate, his brother Luigi's birth certificate and their parents marriage license that had their parents names on it. What a wonderful lady."
charliemis - I'm so pleased that you received these documents, and that Riccardo was able to find someone there who was willing to help by doing a local search for you - and then even chasing up another office until the things you had wanted were found. That was really kind of him and them.
But - having said that - I wonder if you, or anyone else, would have EVER recieved such courtesy if it had not been for the intervention of a kind person like Riccardo.
Surely these offices could (should) do the searches regardless of whether it is as a 'favour'? I wonder how many others like you have finally had to give up their searches as, not getting any reply, they have become convinced that the documents they seek either DON'T exist OR that they have incorrect information. Such a shame if that does happen - and I'm convinced that it does. It seems to be too much trouble for some comunes...
