What Do I Do Next?[edit | edit source]

I Found Who I was Looking for, What Now?[edit | edit source]

  • Consult the Italy Record Finder Table to find other records
  • Use the age of your ancestor to find an approximate birth year to begin your search in church or civil 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
  • Church Records often were kept years before government records were required and are a good source for finding ancestors before 1900

I Can't Find Who I'm Looking for, What Now?[edit | edit source]

  • 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
