Additional Towns

Below are links to additional databases for different towns in Italy and Sicily. Some of these are links to databases that I have made, and some are links to other websites that have databases on them. Most have births, marriages and/or death records on them, some have family trees that have been made from the databases of information. If you have any questions about the databases, please feel free to CONTACT ME. If I made the database, I may be able to answer your questions! Enjoy and good luck!

Ancestry.com | Ancestry is slowly adding some very good Italian databases! They have also recently partnered with FamilySearch and they are adding some of the FamilySearch databases to Ancestry as a result. Remember, you can get those particular databases for FREE at www.familysearch.com. Many of the Ancestry Italian databases are not searchable by name, but you can browse the actual documents which in my opinion is even better! It can be tedious and I think microfilms are quicker, but you can search at 2 in the
morning if you want! You have to pay for a subscription to this site, but many Family History Centers and libraries offer FREE access.

FamilySearch.org | When the digitizing and indexing of the entire Mormon microfilm collection is completed, this is going to be the most awesome website in the world! There are already 138 Italian databases on the site, but don’t be deceived by that number. If you see your province or a town in your province listed with (Tribunale) or (State Archive) next to it, this indicates there are records for more than one town included. For example, at the top of the list is Italy, Agrigento, Agrigento, Civil Registration (Tribunale), 1866-1942. While this looks like it has the City of Agrigento records, it actually has records for 30 towns within the Province of Agrigento! If the title you are looking at says Comune next to it, it is just records for that individual town.  Also helpful for Italian research on this site: the Brazilian and Argentinean Catholic Church records databases, not to mention thousands of other helpful databases!

Antenati-Gli Archivi per la Ricerca Anagrafica | This website has digitized images from different State Archives around Italy, including Napoli, Genoa, Bari, Firenze, Caltanissetta, Messina and L’Aquila, among others. The images can’t be saved or downloaded, but try taking a picture of your computer screen with your cell phone. Then you can save to your computer, enlarge and enhance as needed.

Archivio di Stato di Cosenza |  This website will allow you to search by surname any town within that province 1800-1900. It is searching draft records and will show you parent names, the town of birth, date of birth and more. Excellent if you only know your family is from this province, but you don’t know what town.

Public Record Center  |  This website has listings for many countries, including Italy. In the Italian section, there are some excellent links to various vital records databases.

Civil Records of Different Italian and Sicilian Towns | Too many towns to list ! Includes Marsala, towns in Africa, and so much more!

Catholic Baptisms, Marriages and Burials in Tunisia  | Thousands of Italians and Sicilians migrated to Tunisia in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. This database is fantastic. The page is in French, but with some poking around you can find your names. There are 2 marriages charts-one alphabetized by groom, one by bride. Once you find your surname, it will give you the parish name.

If you have family from a town in the Province of Catanzaro, Cosenza or Reggio Calabria, be sure to check the appropriate link below.
