There is a companion book for the microfilms, Discovering Your Italian Ancestors by Lynn Nelson which most people find very helpful. =Peter=

You could also download the transcriptions of different rites: births marriage and deaths on this link below. There are different formats of the same rite. They are useful because you will find that through the years and at different comunes the format will change.

Hope this Helps
