Generally, an alphabetical index by surname is listed at the end of civil registers; 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 may be damaged due to natural elements, therefore, some information may have been lost or hard to read, but for the most part they are readable. Text of the records is in Italian with some Latin included. This collection may be searched by browsing images in FamilySearch Historical Records.

The collection consists of civil registration (stato civile) of births, marriages, and deaths within the custody of the State Archive of Napoli (Archivio di Stato di Napoli) for the years 1809 to 1865. Includes marriage banns (pubblicazioni; notificazioni); baptismal records (battesimi); ecclesiastical returns of marriages (matrimoni ecclesiastici); marriage memorandums (atti di memorandum); diverse records (atti diversi); marriages and deaths outside of the place of usual residence (matrimoni e morti fuori domicilio); and marriage supplemental documents (processetti). At the present time, this collection contains records for only certain sections (quartieri) of the city of Napoli. The quartieri of Napoli represented in the current collection include the following: Avvocata; Chiaia; Fuorigrotta; Mercato; Miano e Marianella; Montecalvario; Posillipo; San Carlo all'Arena; San Ferdinando; San Giuseppe; San Lorenzo; Santissima Annunziata; Stella; Vicaria; and Vomero. Additional records for the city of Napoli and for surrounding towns (comuni) will be added as they become available.

== How to Use the Record  ==
  
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 fill in the requested information in the boxes on the initial search page. This search will return a list of possible matches. Compare the information about the individuals in the list to what you already know about your ancestors to determine if this is the correct family or person. You may need to look at the information on several individuals comparing the information about them to your ancestors to make this determination. Keep in mind:
  
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.  
+
*There may be more than one person in the records with the same name.  
 +
*You may not be sure of your own ancestor’s name.
 +
*Your ancestor may have used different names, or variations of their name, throughout their life.
 +
*If your ancestor used an alias or a nickname, be sure to check for those alternate names.  
 +
*Even though these indexes are very accurate they may still contain inaccuracies, such as altered spellings, misinterpretations, and optical character recognition errors if the information was scanned.
  
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.

== Known Issues with This Collection  ==
*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 records 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.
