Italy Social Life and Customs
Effective family research requires some understanding of the society in which your ancestor lived. Learning about everyday life, religious practices, customs, and traditions will help you appreciate your ancestor and the time in which he or she lived. This information is particularly helpful if you choose to write a history of your family. Research procedures and genealogical sources are different for each area and time period and are affected by the local customs and traditions.
The Family History Library has a few sources that discuss a variety of subjects related to Italian social life and customs. These records are listed in the Family History Library Catalog under:
