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 and after 1815 the records were handwritten in printed forms. The text of the records is in Italian and partially in Latin.  
+
The collection consists of images of baptisms, marriages, and deaths from the Diocese of Monreale (Diocesi di Monreale), Palermo, Italy. Also includes confirmations (cresime); church censuses (stato delle anime); marriage banns (pubblicazioni); marriage contracts (contratti di matrimonio); marriage supplemental documents (documenti matrimoniali); ecclesiastical documents (documenti ecclesiastici); and family trees (alberi genealogici). Availability of records is largely dependent on time period and locality.  
  
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.

+
*Name of the priest performing the baptism

+
== How to Use the Record  ==
+
 
+
Some records have indexes at the end of the volume. Frequently, these indexes are arranged by the given name of the individual and sometimes use the Latin form of the name. Those volumes without indexes need to be searched chronologically for the individuals sought.
+
  
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.

When you have located your ancestor’s record, carefully evaluate each piece of information about other people listed in the record. These pieces of information may give you new biographical details that can lead you to other records about your ancestors.

== Record History, Content and Use  ==
  
*Use the baptism date and place to find the family in census records.
+
For details about the contents of these records, their history, and help using them see the wiki article: [[Italy Catholic Church Records (FamilySearch Historical 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.
