People can say what they will about but they have surely outdone themselves this time. They have now added the areas of Como and Lecco, apparently they are intending to do the entire Lombardia regione. they are Births, marriages, publicaziones and deaths 1866-1936!!

Original scanned images!! They are not yet complete but new records are going up quickly!

Lombardia Stato Civile records

This is amazing! The LDS don't even have these available.

Saw this yesterday on the site, James. And it is truly remarkable!

I also wonder, since the LDS has been cut off from Catholic Records, if Ancestry is somehow going to get access to those records? Would be great, wouldn't it?...

I must admit, I was not an Ancestry fan......however, my attitude has changed over the has been a great research tool.

Now to cross my fingers and pray that the Pesaro Urbino province somehow ends up on Ancestry!!!!!

Although I havent been actively researching lately, I find this an outstanding addition to ancestry.

I hope they do other areas of Italy.

I often wondered if the FHL would get this type info and had begun to think "not in my lifetime". lol

I have to keep my eye on ancestry, it seems. If their plan is to do all of Italy, I dont think it will take them long. It didnt take long for them to get the censuses out there!!

Thanks for the heads up.

This is a truly amazing thing. Would you happen to know if they have or will have Sicily provinces soon ???

Yesterday, I was poking around ancestry and found a contact us link.

Not that I think that I would get a reply, but I gave it a shot, and asked them if other areas of Italy were coming...and perhaps a timeframe.

I go to send this thing and instead of it going, I get this registration button. I got nervous, because I dont have a paid acct there at the moment..and i figured, if was writing from my acct..why would I need to register.

Anyway, I never sent it. Maybe if someone has a paid acct there, they could ask.

I would gladly pay them double the fee for this type info in the areas I

Me again...did everyone take note, that these areas have records up to 1936? Not even the FHL has that. I believe theirs end at around 1910...and that is only some. The ones I need are only up until the mid 1800s, leaving me with a big gap between what I know..and what I need to know.

Ancestry only works when everyone contributes. That way a little piece of your puzzle fits with a little piece of my puzzle and so on and so on. Eventually you get a collateral, cohesive picture. Even if you only take the free 14 day trial and post up all you have and cancel, it's still worth it. You can always sign back up for one month a year to read any messages that may have come your way. You can also go under a friend and post with their account. Just so long as the tree gets out there.

I upgraded to the Euro version for a few months, but the stuff is not searchable other than viewing page by page, and there are no family statos, which is what I would really be after.

It would be nice if they could provide some sort of liasion service with the comunes for info.

PS, you may want to change the title of this thread, clicking on it just takes you to the ancestry site. Drop the .com, it's acting as a link.

I have two trees on ancestry. I don't bother paying for the membership. You can just go to the libraries that have the Ancestry Library Edition and download the documents for free. I'm glad I couldn't afford it when I started, because I've learned that they make it too easy to add things.
With a few clicks, you can add whole families. I've tested that out when they've had free documents, like they did for a few days recently with the 1910 US Census. If you attach a document to a person in your tree during that period though, you can't look at the document after the free period is over.
I download any new files to my computer so that I can look at them anytime I want. The only drawback to using the library edition is that you can't access your tree from the library. So I write names and dates along with any hints that Ancestry gives me.
Sometimes when I search that way, I end up finding things that never even showed up as hints. Also, I got into the habit early on of transcribing every single document I add to the tree. That way, I learn all the relevant info. It can be too easy to just click and add it to one's tree and not check it for clues or new leads.
I would have missed out on alot if I had been using the Ancestry subscription from the beginning. I would really like to see alot of records from Sicily show up and also of the Naples region of Italy. I didn't know that the Mormons had been cut off from Catholic records. Of course, I suppose it wouldn't really matter for them.
I heard before that the Mormons are trying to baptise everyone who's ever lived, at least those who haven't been. Anyone in those Catholic records would already have been baptised, right?

Through, I have been able to find much information about my ancestors that lived in Maccio. Now I am looking for information about ancestors that lived in Brizzolara (Genova, Liguria). I have not found a similar database on Do you know if another online database exists that contains records from Liguria?
Thanks! Rita

For Italian records, both Family History (for all provinces) and this other site (for just the province of Bari)has better records than ... Id=1927178

http://www.antenati.san.beniculturali.i ... o+di+Bari/

Plus you don't have to spend $3,000 every ten years to continuously see hints. That really offends my sense of value. Therefore, I only subscribe for one to two months per year to review their hints; the rest of the time I just maintain my free membership.
