Question #1: When I try to search this collection and view the images I get a message that the images are not available. How may I view the images?
Answer #1:FamilySearch has limited rights, granted by the record custodians, to publish images from the Italy, Prato, Civil Registration (State Archive), 1866-1923 collection for viewing online. Images for this collection are only available for viewing to members of the sponsoring organization (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints). These images are available on microfilm for viewing at a FamilySearch Center; for instructions, see Ordering Microfilm or Microfiche.
If you have an LDS account and are not able to view images after signing in, it may be due to a registration problem, not an image access problem. Please call 1-866-406-1830 in the United States, or contact Patron Services at email@example.com. Please include a brief description of the problem and steps taken thus far to resolve the issue.
Question #2: Even when I am signed in, I cannot always view images, but get a message that the images are not available. Is there a way to view these records?
Answer #2: Italian Data Privacy rules prohibit viewing the following records: All birth images must be 100 years or older; all marriage images must be 70 years or older, and all death images must be 70 years or older.
If any record on a digital folder contains images that fall within these cut-off dates, they may not be viewed. For example, if birth records that fall within the last 100 years are on the film, the entire digital folder is restricted.
The Historical Records collections will be updated each year to show new unrestricted records. FamilySearch respects and strives to adhere to all privacy laws respective to preserving and providing access to genealogical records in its collection.
Question #3: When I go to print or save an image, the buttons are gray and it will not let me either print or save. Is there a way I can print and/or download from this collection?
Answer #3: There is a no print/no save restriction with these collections at the request of the record custodians.
