How to use this Corleone Church Marriage Index 1529-1951

Postby rp76226 » 25 Nov 2013, 22:30

There are 584 pages to this index covering the years 1529 to 1951, but I cannot figure out any logical order except for when I find a specific year which occurs in the late 1800s, much later than I am looking for. Some of the pages seem to cover decades from line to line, but in no logical order (for example see page 10). Here's the link - https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/T ... :776288049

I am trying to find the marriage record of Francesco Bartolotta and Bernarda Leggio. I know they had a child about 1810 so I would assume the marriage is 1-20 years prior to that. once I find them, I'm hoping to find their parents and grandparents.

Just use the indexes in front of marriage records for the years your searching if theres over 500 pages there is usually another index in the middle like
Corleone San Martino
Matrimoni 1798-1832
Image 300 of 592 2nd index for those years
I did a quick search in those indexes I didn't see Francesco Bartolotta and Bernarda Leggio listed
Can you post that baptism record

Thank you, Marty. For my edification, how did you find this record? I'd like to learn how to find these myself. There must have been something that led you to this page among so many other pages.

It just so happens the index for that time period was in the middle of the registry at the beginning of the year you are searching by first name Vincenzo (Vincentius)Bartolotta listed on page 19 just find the last page of the index and go to page 19 look for your record

Marty, it appears that this index starts with Image 211 and the names start with image 213. I do not see any years indicated on these images. How did you know that this index was for the correct year?
