FamilySearch Record Search This article describes a collection of historical records available at FamilySearch.org.


Contents

Record Description

This index is an electronic database of information. The entries are primarily from the International Genealogical Index (IGI), along with some entries derived from compiled and original records such as:

  • Family Records
  • Church Records
  • Civil Registration

The index may also include indexes generated by the internet indexing project sponsored by the LDS Church.

There may be entries that cite a specific source such as the following:

  • "Vital Record of Rhode Island, 1636-1850: a Family Register for the People" by James Arnold
  • "Paul Dingwell Genealogical Collection" by Paul Dingwell
  • A county or state vital record registration

These entries are in this collection for one of the following reasons:

  • They were submitted by private individuals to the LDS Church and as such are part of the IGI resulting in their inclusion in this index.
  • They have been indexed through the internet indexing project sponsored by the LDS Church. If this is the case, the index they are a part of has been included as part of this database.

The Vital Record Index databases are not necessarily intended to index any specific set of records although some sub-indexes (an index to a set of records within the database) have been found. When we identify a sub-index, we remove it from the database and post it separately on FamilySearch under its appropriate title.

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 deaths or burials 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).  This index is not complete for any particular place or region.

This index covers events from 1806 through 1900. 

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints sponsored the indexing of this collection to help individuals find information about their ancestors.

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.
