Rivoli, Torino, Italy

Postby marytrando » 30 Jul 2003, 18:39

My grandmother was born in Rivoli, Torino, Italy. Is this a big town that would have more than one church. I'm trying to locate the church so that I can get a baptismal record for her.

The mormon church people suggest $15.00 for documents from churches since priests have to stop and do the checking or hire someone to do it. Peter

Don't forget to write in Italian too! (I guess the thanks were for the Two of us). Peter and Suanji

Records for parishes in the Diocese of Torino are available on microfilm through Family History Centers (FHC). These records cover baptisms, marriages and deaths for the period 1823 to 1899.

Also available on microfilm from any FHC are civil vital records for Rivoli. These records include births, banns, marriage and deaths for 1866 to 1929.

There are real advantages to using the microfilms rather than writing to Italy. It is quicker to get the records. If you live in the USA, the microfilms usually arrive within 3-4 weeks of your order. Secondly, with the microfilms, you can look through the records for relatives of your grandmother.

Good luck with your research.

provided you can read italian script and have good eyes on poorly lit microfilm machines and you bring along a magnifying glass. It also helps if you can understand italian when you read it. This does not mean that your suggestion is not a worthy one as I suggest the FHL microfilms on occcasions when I deem it appropriate. I just feel people should be able to weigh the advantages and disadvantages of a good thing. Peter

Actually, you have reminded me of another advantage of using microfilms -- you can view the entire, original record. When requesting records from a parish or vital records office, you often receive extracts of the original record which may not include all of the details of interest to a genealogist.

As far as "poorly lit microfilm", I believe all Family History Centers have microfilm copiers which allow you to adjust the sharpness and contrast of a record before making a paper copy.

Your message also reminds me that I forgot to mention Lyn Nelson's book "Discovering Your Italian Ancestors", which I found invaluable in deciphering the script and the language of the records.

...and don't forget the Italian genealogical records by Traffor R. Cole which also is instructive and an easy read. I think it is wonderful that there are two options available to people who wish to write directly for a single record and those who wish to avail themselves of microfilms of entire records which, hopefully, they can read with or without a maginfying glass.
