Thank you Mr. Timber. I may try that. However, in the same e-mail the registro civil quotes the cost--which exhorbitant. In Peruvian currency $90 for postage and $42 each for the two birth certificates.An internet currency converter shows that $90 Peruvian Nuevos Soles is $27. U.S. just for the postage! Can that be??? It only costs 85 cents to mail a letter to Spain.
