Has anyone found a good online reference for deciphering the script in official records? I'm having a tough time with some of the capital letters. Thanks.

The books Italian Genealogicasl records by Trafford R. Cole and Discovering Your Italian Ancestors by Lynn Nelson may help meet your needs. =Peter=
