Help on Allegati records

Postby rp76226 » 08 Dec 2013, 04:11

I was looking at Allegati records for Petralia Soprano. Here's the link - https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/T ... 1391272815

It's supposed to be various records, but it is almost all related to birth records. I'm trying to look for death records for Francesco Cerami (b 1812) and his wife Giuseppa LaBarbera (b 1831). There is a 20 year missing gab (1865 - 1883) for this commune on its digitalized death records. I thought maybe I could find something on the Allegati records, but it does not seem to comment on death records. Is that typical? It also doesn't appear to have an index.

My use of Allegatis, it is a good source as many times it will include LOTS of information and yes you can get information pertaining to a death record. But you don't always see a death record. I went through the Allegatis record by record.

Good luck

With over 3,000 pages for a five year period, and especially if one is not conversant in Italian, no index to find people that interest you, plus the awful Italian handwriting making it difficult to read the words, I don't know anyone can go through these records for every page. It would take full days if not weeks of researching and you may not find anything relevant to your family.

Allegatis are time consuming but there are a lot of information you can get.
I have started approx 3 months ago with researching and I have learned with the Discovering Italian Ancestors by Lynn Nelson it has taught me how to get the most important information from NATI, MORTI and Matrimoni documents which are online from 1866 - 1910 or there about. Not trying to read Italian or Latin but one can get by.
Plus there are some very wonderful people in this forum that provide an enormous amount of help some which live in Italy.
