You won't need any apostilles for Italian originated documents. The documents are eventually sent back to the comune, and they can easily compare your documents to verify they are what they have on file.

I had an experience exactly like matta explained... My mother made a request to NYC for her father's birth certificate from 1919 and was rejected. She then sent a letter with a copy of his death certificate and her birth certificate along with a note explaining that 1) she needed his death certifica...

Just got off the phone this afternoon. After getting the run around from the different vital records departments I was able to get a hold of the death corrections unit. She was unsure if they would be able to do a pre-1949 document, but said that I should send everything in and give it a try. I was ...

If you could please PM me her details that would be great. I think there is a chance I spoke with her about the creation of a birth certificate for this same individual (my ggf) and she was not impressed with me at all. I will give this a try though and give her a call tomorrow if you can provide me...

Thanks very much for the posting. Can you let me know what year this death certificate was for? (basically I am curious if it is pre-1949, thus normally held at the archives as opposed to the department of mental health and hygiene). The closest next-of-kin is my ancestor's grandchild, so I have ask...

Thanks very much for the reply. I paid another $25 to the Municipal Archives in a last ditch effort for them to search for a delayed birth certificate before his marriage. I also am going to contact the Archives to see if I can request his marriage license application (http://tinyurl.com/5qaubp). Ei...

Birth cert required to get married in NYC?

Hi all, My GGF has no birth cert from his birth year of 1887. I know his birth date from his baptism form, and his WWI draft card. I have searched for years around that date, but had no luck finding the record. The Municipal Archives also turned up no records on two separate searches. My question is...

If the church is willing you could get a mobile notary public (google will give results for wherever the church is) that will travel to the church and notarize the signature of the church official on the copy of the baptismal certificate. I have also heard of people successfully using baptismal cert...

JM - Could you tell me what years the death certificates you modified were from? Mine are from 1922 and 1946, which falls under the Municipal Archives. Like valentinaroan the Archives told me they don't modify documents, but I hope that Vital Records can still do it. Valentinaroan - Just to toss out...

I spoke with the people in the NYC Vital Records office. They transferred me to the corrections department, and there you could ask them about your situation. I had luck with: (212) 788-4500. Note that they seem to publish the (212) 788-4520 number everywhere, but it's just a basic informational men...

JM - Is there a reason you went the court order route rather than using form VR61 with the same documents used as proof for the court order? It seems like NYC has a form designed to make changes to the death certificate. I don't want to waste a few months if they will just mail the form/application ...

I just wanted to post a follow-up from my call with NYC department of vital records: They will not, under any circumstances, issue a delayed birth certificate for someone that is deceased. I spoke with the supervisor of the department and was told "it doesn't matter if you have a court order or...

Can't figure out what form VR 34 is though. Thanks for the link... I had seen the same page, but I am also unable to track down the VR 34 form. There are other links (for changes to BCs) that link to different VR forms, so it's probably out there somewhere. I'll give them a call tomorrow and see wh...

Thanks very much for the information... Tiffany - The nearest kin is actually my mother, who is in the US and could send in the form. I will ask them about that form (and whether a great-granddaughter) is close enough "kin" to make the changes. matta - Did you get the court orders in PA fo...
