Generally, at the end of a civil register 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 in 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 for the most part the records are readable. The text of the records is in Italian with some Latin included. This collection may be searched by name of ancestors and also by browsing images in FamilySearch Historical Records. Availability of records is largely dependent on time period and locality.

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 began again officially 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 provincial archives (Tribunale).

The civil registration records are an excellent source of accurate data on names, dates, and places for genealogical research in Voghera. However, before 1860, when civil registration became law for the entire country, it is suggested to research the church records.
