These records have been digitally captured at the Archivio Tavola Valdese in Torre Pellice, Torino, Italy. Most of the records in this collection are written in French; some are written in Italian.

The Waldensian Evangelical Church is an Italian Protestant denomination that goes back to the Middle Ages.

Since then, the church has developed and spread through Italy and other countries.

This collection of Waldensian Church records covers the years 1679-1969. Each parish kept a record of events such as baptism, marriage, and death in the life of their members. These church records are reliable and an important source for family history.

With either search keep in mind:

  • 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.
