There are thousands of active singles on Date looking to chat right now.He is fluent in both languages but can only write in English (and he isn't illiterate by any means) I worked for the Bank Of Spain in my youth as a translator in the ECB and when I chatted with Maltese colleagues there, they always howled in protest that the ECB in Frankfurt had translated all their official ECB documents into Maltese for them as about 30 % of them couldn't read them and always used English. Got my marriage docs from the Maltese ancestry site. All written in Italian which was written and spoken at that time.The only other problem you may have is that about 60 % of the island (so it seems to me) is either called Borg or Micallef although apparently the official figure is that 76 % of the entire island share the same 100 surnames. There is a Malta FHS a post on Rootschat may turn up someone who can help, and there appears to be a Malta board among the ancestry chat boards. I'm trying to get back beyond civil registration so all records would be held by parish churches I assume. I was wondering if anyone has any experience with researching family history in Malta.I live in Australia (and neither speak nor read Maltese) so I will have to engage a researcher in Malta. If anyone has any experience with a Maltese researcher that they can recommend I would be very grateful.Suggest that you read and familiarise yourself with the content of Barb's web site first. I watched the Adam Hills episode of WDYTYA Australia again last night and that also has a trip to Malta. English is their defacto language of choice for official matters, although all Maltese speak Maltese (obviously) , not all of them can write in Maltese.
