Directories


Directories are alphabetical lists of names and addresses. They often list all adult residents or tradespeople of a city or area.

Telephone Directories

Telephone directories sometimes have city maps and may include addresses of churches, cemeteries, civil registration offices, and other locations that may be of value to you. These directories can also help you determine the areas where particular surnames are common.

The Family History Library has Italian telephone directories. These are listed in the Locality Search of the FamilySearch Catalog under:

ITALY, [PROVINCE]- DIRECTORIES

The library also has some older telephone directories on microfilm. In addition, the library has the following compact disc:

  • Indirizzi e numeri di telefono di tutta Italia(Addresses and telephone numbers of all of Italy). Mannheim, Germany: Topware CD Service, 1996. (FHL disc AUTOMATED RD CD 4500 no. 64, CCD 808625.)

Church directories can help you find diocese and parishes. See Italy Church Directories for more information.
