Archivio di Stato di Firenze

Postby justjw » 11 Nov 2009, 21:27

A question about the Archivio di Stato di Firenze, the answer to which I cannot seem to find on their website (and if the answer is there it's lost in a barrage of Italian, with the "English version not available" I'm afraid...):

Do they have the marriage records for the 15th and 16th century ?
I tried their search-button but all I seem to get is inventories of archives, books, dissertations etc. Anything but marriage records.

And if they have them can you just turn up in the Sala Studio and ask for them, or do you have to "reserve" them beforehand, or do you have to register with them to get access? How does that go?

I tried to make sense of their website but nope, this one's too big for me.

Hope someone on here has onhand experience with the Florence State Archives!

Thanks

Florence state archive has civil records from 1800, for prior records you need to contact the diocesis or parish

There are 111 parish churches listed for Firenze at www.parrocchie.it in the evnt you have the names of certain parish churches. If not I refer you once again to the Antiquarian bookdealer Arnaldo Forni Editor for his guidance on how to best to proceed, if possible, with pre-1800 marriage records.

His Firenze agency is AGENZIA LIBRARIA TOSCANA VIA CECIONI 105, 50142, FIRENZE. The e-mail address is info@agenzialibrariatoscana.it

Only 111 ? Oh, now that narrows it down quite considerably ! ;-)

I have no clue whatsoever to what parish my ancestors belonged : the DaLutiano's lived on Via Cavour, nextdoor to the Medici's, and the San Lorenzo was their church (many of them were baptised & buried there); the DelTovaglia's were from the Santa Croce neighbourhood, at least one of them is buried in the Santa Croce, but one was a patron of the SS Annunziata, and the Pitti's are from the Oltr'Arno.....

I see that I mixed up two institutions in my initial post : the State Archives and the archives of the Duomo (who have the baptism registers online). Got the contact details (e-mail adresses, names, visiting hours etc) for the Duomo so I'll try there.
And I'll send out an e-mail to Arnaldo Forni Editore, who knows they may know just the person to contact! Thanks for the link.

"....in view of it renaissance implications." Eww, now thát sounds ominous! ;-)

Will keep you all advised of my progress in tracking down my long-lost ancestors.
Don't expect an answer soon though, so makes yourselves comfortable.
I have a feeling it's gonna be a long-haul flight this one....
But an interesting one, Renaissance Florence sure was an interesting period.

Not to worry Thanks to Hugh Tornabene who triggered my memory of my own family researches back to 1100AD, I now reconstituted all the medieval websites for Firenze with a continual stream of subdivisions of Medieval subjects for that glorious city and Italy which is another Tome for research and mental frolic. =Peter=
