Customer Question

I am an American (born in the US) who is qualified for French citizenship by filiation. I have a second cousin in France who has volunteered to some of the footwork in helping me assemble all the necessary documents: actes de marriages, de naissance, etc. Is she allowed to go to a Mairie and obtain them on my behalf? I so, does she need an official letter and what would that be. One notarized in the US by a French consulate, or an ordinary local notary public. Or is is possible at all and do I have to write directly to the mairie. If I do, is a simple registered letter sufficient?
Merci d'avance.
