BDM records in Cuneo, Italy

Postby cispt2 » 02 Feb 2012, 20:51

Hi all,

I'm just starting to help a friend on his Italian roots - I'm a very experience genealogist when it comes to UK, USA, Australia but have never dipped into Italian records.

I have some fairly specific information and need to look into a few villages in Cuneo. Could someone please point me towards information on BDM records (church or civil) in this province? I initially found some useful information using Google, but never managed to find that information again.

Any leads greatly appreciated.

cheers,
matt

Thanks Suanj!
I took a little while to get the hang of the State Archives at familysearch but I found my man. I had a few questions I can't find an answer to

- Are there older records that are not yet scanned? Or are earlier records lost/not recorded by civil registration?

- Second, the death certificates do not state the date/place of burial. I don't know the habits for burial in Italy around 1883, but would a wealthy family bury with a headstone? I would like to try and track down Carru cemetery to look at their burials. Is it likely I would find headstones extant from that time?

cheers,
matt
