This collection of civil registration (stato civile) records includes births, marriages, and deaths within the custody of the State Archive of Bari (Archivio di Stato di Bari). Also includes marriage banns (notificazioni o pubblicazioni); marriage memorandums (atti di memorandum); marriage supplemental documents (processetti); annotations to death records (annotazioni di morte); and miscellaneous records (atti diversi). Availability of records is largely dependent on time period and locality.
  
<br> Generally, at the end of a civil register there is an alphabetical index by surname; however, not all years are indexed for each record type. Most records follow a generally accepted format, which is handwritten in narrative style and in later years in formatted records. Some of the original records were damaged due to natural elements at the time of filming; therefore, some information may have been lost or hard to read, but for the most part the records are readable. This collection may be searched by name of ancestors and also by browsing images in FamilySearch Historical Records.

Begin your search by finding your ancestors in the index. Use the locator information in the index (such as page, entry, or certificate number) to locate your ancestors in the birth, marriage, or death records.  
+
To search the collection, select "Browse through images" on the initial collection page <br>⇒ Select the “Comune o frazione” <br>⇒ Select the “ Registro e L'Anno” which takes you to the images.  
  
Compare the information in the birth record to what you already know about your ancestors to determine if this is the correct person. You may need to compare the information of more than one person to make this determination. Be aware that, as with any index, transcription errors may occur.
+
Look at the images one by one comparing the information with what you already know about your ancestors to determine which one is your ancestor. You may need to compare the information about more than one person to make this determination.  
 
+
When you have located your ancestor’s birth record, carefully evaluate each piece of information about them. These pieces of information may give you new biographical details that can lead you to other records about your ancestors.
+
 
+
'''For example:'''
+
 
+
*Use the birth date along with the place of birth to find the family in census records.
+
*Use the residence and names of the parents to locate church and land records.
+
*The father’s occupation can lead you to other types of records such as employment or military records.
+
*The parents' birth places can tell you former residences and can help to establish a migration pattern for the family.
+
*It is often helpful to extract the information on all children with the same parents. If the surname is unusual, you may want to compile birth entries for every person of the same surname and sort them into families based on the names of the parents. Continue to search the birth records to identify siblings, parents, and other relatives in the same or other generations who were born in the same county or nearby.
+
 
+
'''Keep in mind:'''
+
 
+
*The information in birth records is usually reliable, but depends upon the reliability of the informant.
+
*Earlier records may not contain as much information as the records created after the late 1800s.
+
*There is also some variation in the information given from record to record.

== Record History  ==
+
 
+
When Napoleon annexed large portions of Italy beginning in 1804, he also initiated the process of keeping civil records. These records do not exist in areas where the Emperor did not rule. After his defeat in 1815, many areas discontinue civil registration. Italian civil registration began again officially as Italy became a unified country in 1860; however, in some areas it did not start until 1866. By law, the original record was kept by the municipality (comune), and a copy was sent to the courthouse (tribunale). This collection of civil registration is housed at several provincial archives (Tribunale).
+
 
+
=== Why the Record Was Created  ===
+
 
+
The civil registration recording was implemented by the government to record the vital events of births, marriages, marriage banns, and deaths occurring in the life of the area’s citizens.
+
 
+
=== Record Reliability  ===
+
 
+
The civil registration records are an excellent source of accurate data on names, dates, and places for genealogical research in Bari. However, before 1860, when civil registration became law for the entire country, it is suggested to research the church records.
