What is in This Collection?[edit | edit source]

Also includes marriage banns (notificazioni o pubblicazioni); marriage memorandums (atti di memorandum); marriage supplemental documents (processetti); annotations to death records (annotazioni di morte); and miscellaneous records (atti diversi). Records for this collection generally cover the years 1806 to 1815 and 1866 to 1930 but the availability is largely dependent on time period and locality.

I Can't Find the Person I'm Looking For, Now What?[edit | edit source]

- Continue to search the index and records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives who may have lived nearby
- Remember that a baptism date is not always the same as a birth date
- Sometimes a person is buried in a city or town in which they did not die. Do not assume that a burial place is the same as a death place
