Where to look now?

Postby eguillorn » 01 Dec 2011, 17:39

I believe i have exhausted all possible information from the borrowed LDS microfilms. I'm wondering where I can start looking for records earlier than 1800? My ancestors came from San Giacomo degli Schiavoni in Cambobasso. .

Parish records and unfortunately and as far as I know there are very few on film for that area.

did you look through the processetti records (basically expanded marriage records) on the lds microfilm for your town? if they are available they would include a death record for parents/grandparents of individuals born in the early 1800's and allow you to trace back a couple of generations, usually to around the mid to third quarter of the 18th century. records available before 1800 include the "national census" (catasto onciario) typically performed in the mid 1700's, parish birth/death and marriage records, the church censuses (stati delle anime), military records, and notary records. unfortunately, these can only be accessed by folks over in italy. typically, you will be able to find ancestors back to the late 1500's if you know the town in which they lived.
