FREE ONLINE BIRTH INDEXES AND RECORDS FOR ITALY

This page is a partial listing of free online resources for finding birth and baptism records for Italy. Some of these databases are transcriptions by private individuals who have placed the information on their own free webpages. But most of the resources listed below are Mormon (LDS) Family History webpages which, allow visitors to view and download registration records or certificates for free. If the records themselves are not online, you will need to order copies of birth registrations from the government records offices, or inexpensive photocopies or free scans from the Mormons if the records have been filmed by them, but not yet placed online.

Many genealogy societies as well as governments and other organizations and groups are in the process of digitizing vital records, and their online databases are incomplete. That is because, rather than wait until all records have been indexed, they put the records indexed thus far online. So if you do not find what you want to find at a particular site, do check back periodically to see if the records you are interested in have been added to the database.

Orders of records from private genealogy and vital records services usually cost significantly more money than the government as they charge additional processing fees. So, if you need official copies of birth records, be sure to order them direct from the local records offices. For more helpful information about doing this, see David Zerga's example letters to send to Italy as well as the introductory sites shown below on this page in the section about basic Italian genealogy.
 

Some of the websites shown below also allow you to search for marriages and deaths as well, but this page will only discuss birth indices, birth certificates, and baptismal records.

If you do not find what you need at the free sites listed below, check out our discussions about other general birth records resources on our main Birth Records Page. You may want to also search the Rootsweb Mailing Lists Archiver to see if anyone has transcribed newspaper birth announcements for the area you are interested in.

For the most complete, up to date list of birth and baptismal databases available for Italy at FamilySearch, see the menu for Italy at Family Search site. If the Family Search menus do not work for you, or you encounter problems using their updated site, please read about the Family Search sites on our Birth Records home page for more information about the Family Search sites and how to deal with problems using them.

You may also wish to surf through the comprehensive lists of both free and paid birth and baptismal record sites for Italy on Cyndi's List.

If you feel overwhelmed or frustrated trying to skim the page below or any long webpages trying to find what you are looking for, and do not know how to have your browser search for keywords on a page for you, then read this page about how to really easily find a word or phrase on a page with the help of your browser's "find" option.

We have removed any direct links to FamilySearch Pilot and Search Labs search pages which we previously listed for Italy, because all those search pages have been removed by FamilySearch. If you are unhappy with the new search, the best we can recommend is to write to them, or post a complaint. For more details, see the section on our European births page about the Family Search sites.

If you find, or know of, any free birth index or birth records webpages not listed below, or find any errors or broken links, please email that information to me so we can make this page a more useful resource for everyone.

And check out the other types of truly free genealogy resources there are which you can access from home, by reading our resources page, as well as exploring any other free research sites you may find links to, on the basic Italian Genealogy pages shown immediately below.

Basic Italian Genealogy

If you are an experienced researcher, you can click here to skip this section and go to the database listings.

If you are just now starting to research your Italian ancestry, the techniques you will need to use are the same as for all genealogy. You can start by reading our page about finding your ancestors. But it will probably also be helpful to read some Basic Italian Genealogy websites, so here are three very good ones to explore:

Italian Genealogy 101 - Researching Your Family Tree in Italy
 
   http://genealogy.about.com/od/italy/a/family_tree.htm
 
Sicilian Family Tree - Excellent Advice for Beginning and Experienced Researchers
 
   http://www.sicilianfamilytree.com/links.html
 
Italian Genealogy ONLINE

If you need assistance understanding the records in Latin or Italian, there are many webpages devoted to terms used in Italian genealogical documents. However, they may not have all the terms you will need to know, so make sure you take advantage of translation engines such as Babelfish and Google for definitions of those words. Here are a few webpages we hope you will find helpful, that show English translations of words commonly found in Italian genealogical research:

Italian Genealogical Keywords

   http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Search/RG/frameset_rg2.asp?Dest=G1&Guide=WLItalia.ASP

We also strongly recommend that you join one or more forums or mailing lists for the area or areas of Italy where your ancestors came from, or a general Italian mailing list. Even if you choose to lurk and never post or answer any queries, it is a convenient way to learn about available resources. Check out the ones shown on the mailing list and bulletin board pages for Italy on Cyndi's List.

Hunting for birth records in a country such as Italy where record keeping is done locally rather than nationally, is very hard to do unless you know where, in Italy, your ancestors came from. Knowing what region, province, town or village they came from can make searching much easier for you. If you know the province, but do not know the region, or know the city, town or village and do not know the province, Wikipedia usually has excellent pages that can provide this information from you, and the postal codes site below may also be of assistance. Try the following pages if you do not want to use a general search engine to find the information:

About Family Search's Collections for Italy

Although they have indexed some of their collections for Italy, FamilySearch also has many collections for Italy which contain images for browsing and have not been indexed for searching by name. Unfortunately, that means that to easily take the most advantage of these databases, you need to either know their religion, or know where your ancestors came from at the state level, and preferably the provincia as well, because many records were reported at a higher level of government than the town. Some collections are just for one religion or town (Comune), those collection labeled "Tribunale" contain records for the tribunal court or county level and can include towns within a number of provinces, and there also are collections at the State level.

If you do not want to have to browse these dozens of collections and have no idea what area in Italy your ancestors came from, you might want to read the section about finding ancestral towns on our page about finding your ancestors.

Note that FamilySearch usually provides a range of years as part of the name of the collection, but the full ranges are usually just for marriage and death records. While there are exceptions that we have noted in the descriptions of the Family Search collections, in most cases, you will only find births through 90-100 years ago, with more recent records being unavailable to protect the privacy of those people listed who are still alive.

ITALY: BIRTH COLLECTIONS AND DATABASES

NEWS FLASH!! January 2014 - FamilySearch has added at least ten more databases containing births and baptisms that we have not verified for listing below as free collections containing births or baptisms in Italy. So, be sure to check out their recent additions in the FamilySearch Menu for Italy if you do not find the records you need in the specific databases listed below on this page. Their menu is organized by town and state within Italy so, if you know the region (such as Sicily or Veneto) but do not know exactly where your family came from within that region, check back here in a few weeks for a more up to date listing of their collections by region.

The resources listed below for Italy have been organized by region to make searching easier, for those of you who only know the region in Italy that your ancestors came from, but not the town or province. If you just know your ancestral religion, or the town or province, you can try using Control-F or Apple-F to find specific religions, or towns, provinces and regions of interest mentioned in the descriptions below, or read the pages recommended above in the section about basic Italian Genealogy, to learn more about the towns, provinces and regions of Italy. But also be sure to check the national and multi-regional webpages that we have included in the first section below.

Another option is to go directly to the FamilySearch Menu for Italy, where collections are listed by name of province, but remember that there are also quite a few excellent transcription sites listed below that are not FamilySearch Collections and which contain unique information that may not be available at FamilySearch.

MULTI-REGIONAL   ABRUZZO   BASILICATA   CALABRIA   CAMPANIA   EMILIA-ROMAGNA   FRIULI VENEZIA-GIULIA   LAZIO   LE MARCHE   LIGURIA   LOMBARDIA   MOLISE   PIEMONTE   PUGLIA   SARDEGNA   SICILIA   TOSCANA   TRENTINO ALTO-ADIGIO   UMBRIA   VENETO

NATIONAL AND MULTI-REGIONAL COLLECTIONS

The first two listings below are resource sites that may send you to other websites for Italian vital records transcriptions. We prefer to not make you do a lot of surfing, but there is such a wealth of transcribed data that we have not been able to evaluate for listing here, that we are giving you these links if you want to do some exploring. After the listings for these first two sites, you will find we have provided annotated links below to dozens of webpages that definitely contain birth and baptismal extracts and records for Italy.

ItalyGen is Daniela Massolo's site that has many free Italian Vital Records transcriptions, and also has many excellent links to free transcriptions on other sites. A wonderful site to explore and learn and find records. Scroll down to the section called "Projects grouped by Italian regions." Page also has Spanish and Italian versions.

http://italygen.com/vitalrecords/index.html

Sersale.org lists both free and paid websites that have Civil Records of Various Italian Comunes, as well as email addresses of people who have transcribed records which are not online. We will eventually be adding links to the free sites with birth transcriptions to our rootsweb page, but until we finish doing that, you can also scroll to "Comunes in Mainland Italia" to find links to vital records transcription sites and email addresses. Page is bilingual in English and Spanish.
