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

  • If the original church records that you need have been lost or destroyed or are illegible, you may be able to find a duplicate church record. Unfortunately, it was not standard practice to keep duplicate records until the 1900s. But some dioceses started making duplicates as early as 1820. Duplicates, when they exist, are normally located at the curia vescovile (diocesan archives)
  • In Italy, the parish priest was often required to collect taxes. He would sometimes record information about his parishioners and the tax in church censuses (stato delle anime or status animarum). If the censuses do exist for your parish, the registers list all family members living in a household and their ages or birth dates. Deceased children were not listed. Married children, if living in the same household, were recorded with the family but as a separate household. Familial relationships and addresses were also noted
  • Italy Civil Registration are also a good substitute when church 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
