Birth records

Over 25 million Italians have emigrated between 1861 and 1960 with a migration boom between 1871 and 1915 when over 13,5 million emigrants left the country for European and overseas destinations.

Is it possible to find information records of a persons birth in Turin, Italy born around 1883?

Hello Edie :-)

The LDS (Mormon) Family History Library has on microfilm the civil registrations (births, marriages, deaths, etc.) for Torino (Turin) Italy from 1866 - 1978

You can rent and view these at your nearest LDS Family History Center...

Yes. If you know the town or village..Consult the local Catholic archives. (church) If those records were destroyed in WWII..then you will have to inquire to the Vatican for the
records. First..from Village or Town to the District, then Province. Example:
Laurino, Campania, Italy in Salerno Province. Just do a search and a google map. In small towns and villages, often families were there for generations and all birth and marriages and deaths were recorded by the local priest...Since Italy WAS NOT a United Country until the late 1800's, the Churches kept the personal records.
