Notarial records are of limited value in Italian research. Other sources, such as church records and civil registration records, cover a larger percentage of the population, and notarial records are difficult to access. Few notarial records have been microfilmed.

Sometimes notarial records predate church and civil registration records, and they can cover gaps in those records. Since they contain wills, purchases, sales, and legal disputes, notarial records are useful for researching families who owned property or were involved with legal matters.
