Contents

This wiki article describes a collection that is scheduled to become available for free online at FamilySearch Record Search. 

Collection Time Period

This index covers events from 1806 through 1910.

Collection 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 index is an index of the births or christenings; marriages; and deaths or burials throughout Italy. The index is not necessarily complete for any particular place or region.

Why This Collection 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.

Collection 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.

Collection Description

The index is an electronic database of information transcribed from original records.

Record Content

 The key genealogical facts found in birth or christening index entries may include:
• Name of the child
• Gender
• Names of the parents
• Birth date
• Birthplace
• Christening date (if the source is a church record)
• Family History Library Microfilm and item numbers for the source materials

The key genealogical facts found in marriage index entries may include:
• Name of bride and groom
• Names of the parents
• Marriage date
• Marriage place
• Family History Library Microfilm and item numbers for the source materials

The key genealogical facts found in death or burial index entries may include:
• Name of the deceased
• Gender
• Names of the parents
• Name of the spouse (if married)
• Death or burial date
• Death or burial place
• Family History Library Microfilm and item numbers for the source materials

How to Use the Collection

Use this index to help you learn more about your ancestors. The information could help you identify family relationships and lineages as well as direct you to original records of your ancestors, which may contain additional information.

In birth or christening records, if a surname is not listed for the child, the 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, adding parents' names and as much locality information as is permitted.
