Some strategy tips from Familysearch.org regarding Italian Records Search

You might also want to bring a magnifying glass (sometimes they have some there) because these records are hard to read on the viewers.

Bring a flashdrive. Most centers have the capabilities for saving records to a flashdrive.

Be patient. This is a labor-intensive, but very rewarding experience. :-)
