After checking out the web, I sent a letter, in English,asking for the family information of my husband's grandfather along with a $10.00 bill.In less than 30 days I received from the town clerk-with the seal in Italian-his parents and their parents-and their parents for a total of 11 names and the grandfather's parents birth dates and wedding date.
If you are searching in "old Sale" the address is: Comune Di Castelnuovo Nigra C.A.P. 10080 Provincia Di Torino Itilia fax:0124-69.70.39
With this information I went to the Family History Center and ordered the 3 films on Castelnuovo Nigra to read church documents from 1600-most were in good shape and you can find birth/marriage/death records.
We have stayed in the San Sabistian Church so it was easier for me to find and make copies of these records for my file.
