This collection contains civil registration (stato civile) of births, marriages, and deaths within the custody of the State Archive of Mantova (Archivio di Stato di Mantova). Also includes ten-year indexes (indici decennali), marriage banns (notificazioni o pubblicazioni), supplemental records (allegati), etc. Availability of records is largely dependent on time period and locality.

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; therefore, some information may have been lost or hard to read, but for the most part the records are readable. The text of the records is in Italian with some Latin included. This collection may be searched by browsing images in FamilySearch Historical Records.

*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  ==
+
 
+
In 1804, Napoleon 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 registers were kept by the municipality (comune), and a copy was sent to the courthouse (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 Mantova. However, before 1860, when civil registration became law for the entire country, it is suggested to research the church records.
