1851 Birth Record

Post by SteveDiGi71 » 29 Aug 2013, 03:00


How can I get a Birth Record from 1851 the is digitalized at the Family History Centers of the Mormon Church. Can I request one online, do they have a site?

Hello Steve,
I apologise for not explaining in your other post.
Mormons' site
is one of the biggest online sources for genealogists.
They are carrying on a project with Italian National Archives, so they are digitizing and indexing, with the help of volunteers, civil records now kept at National Archives.
I think the agreement contemplates they can keep digitized records for their "internal" use, whilst Italian Department of Archives will publish them, little by little, on site:


Now, LDS (Mormon's church) is working much faster then the Department; so, work has been done, but has not been published by Beni Culturali yet.
So, now, you have two options:
- Wait until Beni Culturali publishes documents (but this can take years)
- Go to one of the FHC nearest to you (here is the link for a search: https://familysearch.org/locations/centerlocator?c= )
and access the link https://familysearch.org/search/image/i ... %3D2013532

that does NOT show documents from outside.
Hope I could explain, otherwise feel free to ask any other question.
