What Do I Do Next?

I Found the Person I Was Looking For, What Now?

  • Add any new information you’ve found to your records
  • Use the information to find more. For instance, use the age listed in the record to estimate a year of birth, if that is yet undetermined
  • Make sure to fully transcribe and cite the record entry for future reference; see the section Citing This Collection for assistance. Save or print a copy of the image
  • Compile the entries for every person who has the same surname; this is especially helpful in rural areas or if the surname is unusual. This compiled list can help you identify possible relations that can be further verified by researching vital records indexes in the country

I Can’t Find the Person I’m Looking For, What Now?

  • Italy Civil Registration records can also be a good substitute when other records of births, marriages, and deaths cannot be found or are unavailable
  • Check for variants of given names, surnames, and place names. Transcription errors could occur in any handwritten record; also, it was not uncommon for an individual be listed under a nickname or an abbreviation of their name
  • Your ancestor may have immigrated to another country. Search the records of nearby areas or Italy Emigration and Immigration records
  • Search the indexes and records of local genealogical societies
  • Remember that sometimes individuals went by nicknames or alternated between using first and middle names
  • New information is constantly being indexed, microfilmed or updated. Periodically check back to see if your ancestor’s records have been added. You can see if the area you’ve been looking in has been recently updated by going to Historical Records Collections. Watch for an asterisk for recently added or updated records
