FamilySearch Unites with Italian Archive Organization to Digitize Civil Registration Records
More than 23 million images and four million searchable names from Italian genealogical records that were previously available only in archives or on microfilm are now available on the Church’s family history research site, new.FamilySearch.org. Through the efforts of thousands of volunteers participating in the Italy Civil Registration Project, individuals now have access to birth, marriage, and death records for Italian ancestors in a searchable database.
This site comes from the need to organize and make available the documentary heritage for huge civil records in the archives of state of Italy. Thanks to an agreement with FamilySearch in 2011, the objective of the portal is progressively publish millions of images of civil registration (some of these images are scans or microfilm taken by FamilySearch and some are recent scans).
