Witnesses

I am assuming if a person's name is on a matri record, followed with Testimonio they are usually just witnesses, correct?

Information about a town

Does anyone know how you can find out what a town was like back when your ancestors were there?

I have the name of the town and know the jobs of my grandfather and grandmother and understood that those positions were considered for the sake of a better analogy, middle class at least.

Re: Indexes

I have been lucky doing what you suggested about calculating where a index record is located once I find a name on an index. Problem is out of pages and pages you come to indexes usually broken out by years right? But since records are scanned you can't search and I was hoping there would be somethi...

Indexes

Does anyone know how to get to the indexes on FamilySearch. Having to go record by record kind of defeats the purpose of going to the indexes and finding where a record is.
Sure would help.

thanks

Re: Geneology getting info from Italy

The town I had a problem with where it rejected was Mussomeli however the one you sent me for Vallelunga has not rejected so hopefully they will get it and respond.
