This is a collection of Catholic Church records from the parish of San Sulpizio in Biella for the years 1740-1938. The collection includes baptisms, marriages, and burials. The records are generally kept in bound registers consisting of approximately 100-400 pages per volume. Some registers include an index at the end of each volume. Volumes prior to 1815 were handwritten by the parish priest in narrative form with details of the event; after 1815, the records were handwritten in printed forms. The text of the records is in Italian; some earlier registers may have the text in Latin. The original registers were kept in the parish archive and a copy was sent to the diocesan archive. This collection was acquired from the custodian of the records at Borriana Archive in Biella, Italy.
