*[[Italian Genealogical Word List]]

Search the collection by image comparing the information with what you already know about your ancestors to determine if the image relates to them. You may need to look at several images and compare the information about the individuals listed in those images to your ancestors to make this determination.<br>
  
== How to Use the Record  ==
+
===I Found Who I was Looking for, What Now?===                         
 +
*Use the age of the citizen to find an approximate birth year to begin your search in church or civil records.                           
 +
*Continue to search the records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives who may have moved, been recruited or lived nearby. This can help you identify other generations of your family. Repeat this process for each new generation you identify. Compile the entries for every person who has the same surname; this is especially helpful in rural areas or if the surname is unusual. This compiled list can help you identify possible relations that can be further verified by researching [https://familysearch.org/wiki/en/Italy_Vital_Records_Index vital records indexes] in the country.                 
 +
*When you have located your ancestor’s record, carefully evaluate each piece of information given. Save a copy of the image or transcribe the information. These pieces of information may give you new biographical details such as a title, an occupation, or land ownership. Add this new information to your records of each family. You should also look for leads to other records about your ancestors.                         
 +
*[[Italy Church Records|Church Records]] often were kept years before government records were required and are a good source for finding ancestors before 1900.                         
 +
===I Can't Find Who I'm Looking for, What Now?===                             
 +
*Switch to a different record collection. Depending on the time period, either Civil Registration records or Church Records may be more useful.                                 
 +
*While searching, it is helpful to know such information as the ancestor’s given name and surname, some identifying information such as residence and age, and family relationships. Remember that there may be more than one person in the records with the same name as an ancestor and that the ancestor may have used nicknames or different names at different times.                         
 +
*Keep in mind that there may be more than one person in the records with the same name.                         
 +
*Standard spelling of names typically did not exist during the periods our ancestors lived in. Try variations of your ancestor’s name while searching the index or browsing through images. Pay special attention to how the name should have been pronounced and try variations on the pronunciation.                         
 +
*Remember that sometimes individuals went by [http://usgenweb.org/research/nicknames.shtml nicknames] or alternated between using first and middle names. Try searching for [http://genealogy.about.com/od/first_names/fl/nickname-given-name-equivalents.htm these names] as well.                       
 +
*Search the indexes and records of [[Italy Societies|local genealogical societies]].
 +
*Earlier records may not contain as much information as the records created after the late 1800.
 +
*There is also some variation in the information given from one record to another.
  
To search the collection, select "Browse through images" on the initial collection page <br> ⇒ Select the “Provincia” <br> ⇒ Select the “Comune o frazione” <br> ⇒ Select the “Registro e L'Anno” which takes you to the images.

I Found Who I was Looking for, What Now?

  • Use the age of the citizen to find an approximate birth year to begin your search in church or civil records.
  • Continue to search the records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives who may have moved, been recruited or lived nearby. This can help you identify other generations of your family. Repeat this process for each new generation you identify. Compile the entries for every person who has the same surname; this is especially helpful in rural areas or if the surname is unusual. This compiled list can help you identify possible relations that can be further verified by researching vital records indexes in the country.
  • When you have located your ancestor’s record, carefully evaluate each piece of information given. Save a copy of the image or transcribe the information.
