Generally, at the end of a civil register&nbsp;there is an alphabetical index by surname; however, not all years are indexed for each record type. Most records follow a generally accepted format, which is handwritten in narrative style and, in later years, formatted records. Some of the original records were damaged due to natural elements at the time of filming; therefore, some information may have been lost or hard to read, but are readable for the most part. The text of the records is in Italian with some Latin included. This collection may be both searched by name of ancestors and by browsing images in FamilySearch Historical Records.

When Napoleon annexed large portions of Italy beginning in 1804, he also initiated the process of keeping civil records. These records do not exist in areas where the Emperor did not rule. After his defeat in 1815, many areas discontinued civil registration. Italian civil registration officially began again as Italy became a unified country in 1860; however, in some areas it did not start until 1866. By law, the original record was kept by the municipality (comune), and a copy was sent to the courthouse (tribunale). This collection of civil registration is housed at several&nbsp;provincial archives (Tribunale).&nbsp; For a list of records by date or locality currently published in this collection, select the [https://familysearch.org/search/image/index#uri=https%3A//api.familysearch.org/records/collection/1483039/waypoints Browse] link from the collection landing page.

The civil registration recording was implemented by the government to record the vital events of births, marriages, marriage banns, and deaths occurring in the life of the area’s citizens.
 
 
 
The civil registration records are an excellent source of accurate data on names, dates, and places for genealogical research in Caltagirone. However, before 1860, when civil registration became law for the entire country, it is suggested to research the church records.
