==== Search the Collection ====
  
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 records. Compare the information in the record to what you already know about your ancestor 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.

⇒Select the "Nome della Parrochia" <br>
 +
⇒Select the "Tipo di Registro" which takes you to the images.

*Use the baptism date and place to find the family in census records.
+
*Use the residence and names of the parents to locate civil and land records.
+
*The father’s occupation can lead you to other types of records such as employment or military records.
+
*The parents' origin places can tell you former residences and can help to establish a migration pattern for the family.
+
*Marriage date and place may help find their children.
+
*Burial place may also help to know of their migration pattern.
+
*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 baptism entries for every person of the same surname and sort them into families based on the names of the parents. Continue to search the baptism records to identify siblings, parents, and other relatives in the same or other generations who were born, married and died in the same place or nearby.

*The information in church 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.

==== General Information About Vital Records ====
+
 
+
These records were created by official decree of the Roman Catholic Church. The Church required the keeping of the registration of baptisms, marriages, and burials beginning in 1595. This parish began keeping records in 1597.
+
 
+
Typically, the baptisms, marriages, or burials were recorded at the time of the event. The event information, including the names of the principal individuals, is highly reliable. Other information, such as ages, parents’ names, and other relationships, is generally regarded as reliable but could be subject to error.
