Known Issues

Question: I get a message “Image not Available” for some of the record. How can I view these records?
Answer: Whenever possible, FamilySearch makes images available for all users. However, ultimate rights to view images on our website are granted by the record custodians. Italian Data Privacy rules prohibit viewing the following records: All birth images must be 100 years or older; all marriage images must be 70 years or older, and all death images must be 70 years or older.

If any record on a digital folder contains birth records from the last 100 years, for example, the entire digital folder is restricted.

 The Historical Records collections will be updated each year to show new unrestricted records. FamilySearch respects and strives to adhere to all privacy laws respective to preserving and providing access to genealogical records in its collection.

If you encounter problems with these collections, feel free to report them to Please include the following information:
