Specific Document Search

If you are interested in obtaining one or more specific documents but you do not need additional extensive research, then this is the search for you. You don’t have to commit to hours and hours of research if you just need a few specific documents. Sicilian Family Tree can conduct a search for just the exact item(s) you are looking for. The fee for Specific Document Search is as follows:

  • Digital Copy of One Document

  • 1.5 Hours of Research Time

  • Complete Translation

  • Research Report

  • Postage within the United States (if necessary)

  • Each additional document is $25.

  • If more than 1.5 hours of search time is necessary, this will be billed at $30/hour.

If, while searching, we come upon related documents that were not specifically requested, you will be notified and given the option to add those to your order. There is no obligation to purchase the extra items, just the opportunity to do so.

Please note that the documents we have access to online are digitized copies of the original records made at the time the event occurred. These are NOT certified copies that can be used for official or legal purposes, like Dual Citizenship applications. However, finding the document online can help simplify and speed up the process of requesting official certified copies directly from the town. I can assist with those requests or refer you to a colleague in Italy that can help you get the certified document you need in a timely manner.
