Italian Vital Records at FamilySearch.Org

Image from

Though I have no Italian heritage, several of my cousins and friends and co-workers have ancestors who hail from Italy. At FamilySearch.Org there are a wide variety of Italian vital records, some indexed, and some that are images only, that are not indexed. This week I had a chance to browse through two different regions in Italy:

Palermo Civil Registrations


Agrigento Civil Registrations

This process involves browsing through page after page of chronological data. This Italian Indexing Guide  helps in understanding the layout of an Italian birth  record, and translation of key words.  words

Buona ricerca!

Below is a picture of my Uncle Dominic, whose father was born in Italy. Uncle Dom loved his family!
