Gioiosa Guardia Riveli 1748 : highlighting images of interest

Post by VotM » 07 Jun 2016, 09:55

For those researching ancestors in Gioiosa Marea / Gioiosa Guardia: the Riveli have been scanned and are now viewable online at Family History Centers. One film of particular interest for 1748 is #2067048, which identifies itself as "Film: 007554851" online; persumably 7554851 is the DGS number.

Images 1248-1275 and 1307-1333 form a collection of all of the "Anime" sections for that year's Riveli; i.e., a list of all landowners and their families. The list is sorted by the first initials of the landowners' given names. This section is far from perfect: there are occasional entries which are completely out of order (e.g., an "Antonino" in the "F" section) and there is significant bleed-through on several of the pages with the most difficult penmanship, but it may be a good research resource for someone who has identified an ancestor that was an adult in 1748.

Also of interest on that film are images 1276-1281 which appear to show a list of substitute contributions to the town militia, and 1282-1307 which appear to have a supplemental list of "beni" for various landowners. It is not clear why these two sections were placed in the middle of the list of landowners.

Hope this helps!

... and just as quickly, the records are back offline. Apparently the rights to make these available in digital form, even restricted to Family History Centers, had not been properly secured.

Still, for those who wish to rent the films, the summary census area noted above makes film #2067048 of prime interest for the 1748 Riveli in Gioiosa Marea/Guardia. There does not appear to be a matching summary area in the 1711 Riveli for that Commune.
