In birth or baptism records, if a surname is not listed for the child, an indexer often assigns the father’s surname to the child. This surname may not be correct. So if you are looking for a birth or christening, search by the given name of the child, later adding parents' names and as much locality information as is permitted.

+
=== Finding the Original Source for an Entry in This Collection  ===
+
 
+
Each entry in this index has a source listed which includes a batch number. You will need to trace the batch number for the individual entry to learn its source. Please see the following wiki articles for more information on batch numbers:

If an FHL film number is given in the entry for your ancestor, search for it in the [https://www.familysearch.org/#form=catalog&catSearchType=film_number Family History Library Catalog].  
+
 
+
== Record History  ==
+
 
+
For over 30 years, volunteer indexers extracted this information from microfilm copies of the original records. In 2000, some of the entries were published on 8 CDs by the Family History Department of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as the “Western Europe Vital Records Index: Italian Region.” This is an index of some births or baptisms throughout Italy. The index is not necessarily complete for any particular place or region. Some of this information is also found in the International Genealogical Index (IGI).  
+
 
+
=== Why the Record Was Created  ===
+
 
+
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints sponsored the indexing of this collection to help individuals find information about their ancestors.
+
 
+
=== Record Reliability  ===
+
 
+
Church records and civil registration were official records and are some of the most reliable sources of information available for those who were born, married, or died in Italy.
