What Do I Do Next?
I Found the Person I Was Looking For, What Now?
- Use the age of your ancestor to find an approximate birth year to begin your search in Church Records
- 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?
- Consult the Italy Record Finder table to find other records
- Switch to a different record collection. Depending on the time period, either Civil Registration records or Church Records may be more useful
- Remember that there may be more than one person in the records with the same name as an ancestor and that the ancestor may have used nicknames or different names at different times
- Remember that sometimes individuals went by nicknames or alternated between using first and middle names. Try searching for these names as well
- Search the indexes and records of local genealogical societies
New information is constantly being indexed, microfilmed or updated. Periodically check back and see if your ancestor’s records have been added.
