Stato Civile di Potenza, Melfi, Italia
This collection of civil registration for Melfi covers the years xxxx-xxxx and includes births, marriages, deaths, and supplemental documentation files. The registration of birth, marriage, and death were kept on separate registers. The supplemental files include a title page followed by several documents such as:
+
• Notes from hospitals regarding births or deaths
+
• Notes from other towns or foreign countries (occasionally)
+
• Marriage files
+
• Marriage banns
+
• Declarations of intention to marry
+
• Other certificates
+
  
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 older original records were damaged due to natural elements, therefore, some information may have been lost or hard to read. Italian civil registration began officially as Italy became a unified country in 1860; however, in some areas it did not start until 1866. By law, the original record was kept by the municipality (comune), and a copy was sent to the courthouse (tribunale) and later to the state archive. The text of the records is in Italian with some Latin included. This collection may be searched by name of ancestors and also by browsing images in FamilySearch Historical Records.

== How to Use the Record ==
+
==== 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, select "Browse through images" on the initial collection page <br>⇒ Select the “Comune o frazione” <br>⇒ Select the “ Registro e L'Anno” which takes you to the images.  
  
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.
+
== Related Websites ==
   
+
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.
+
+
For example:
+
* 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.
