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.
The civil registration records are an excellent source of accurate data on names, dates, and places for genealogical research in Acerra. However, before 1860, when civil registration became law for the entire country, it is suggested to research the church records.
