*Use the age of your ancestor 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. 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.

*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 nicknames or alternated between using first and middle names.                     
 +
*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.
