I am trying to trace my ancestors who originate from Varazze, Genoa. I have gone back to 1723 when one Bartolome Bosano arrived in Gibraltar. He died on the 22 June 1769. I will be travelling to Verazze soon and need help to continue my search.
Varazze is not far from Genoa but is under Savona province. I guess registers for births, marriages and deaths in the City Hall start from 1866 like most other towns.
I don't know if church registers go back to 1700. Anyway, I was told once that those registers were kept in the church of S. Ambrogio in Varazze and the priest name was Don Luigi Grosso.
