Missing original GGF/GGM birth certificates

Postby tdz2010 » Tue Sep 07, 2010 11:00 pm

Hi all - I have all of my documents except for my GGF's and GGM's birth certificates. I have tried using one of these services (not very good) and as it turns out my GGM's birth certificate was burned in a fire in Frigento, Italy and my GGF's birth certificate was lost in a strike. I am getting this through my GGF so his is the important one although I imagine I may need both. My question is: are there any other documents that I can use in place of the original birth certificates if the originals were destroyed? The Italian Embassy here in NY is incredibly difficult and offered little advice.

Thank you!
