What is in the Collection?
The collection consists of of civil registration (stato civile) of births, marriages, and deaths within the custody of the State Archive of Macerata (Archivio di Stato di Macerata). It generally covers the years 1804 to 1814. However, the availability of records is largely dependent on time period and locality.
The civil registration records are an excellent source of accurate data on names, dates, and places for genealogical research. However, before 1860, when civil registration became law for the entire country, it is suggested to research the church records.
