The Portal "Antenati" was created with the purpose of putting online the huge wealth of civil status records (birth; marriage; death) kept by the Italian State Archives . Periodically new records are made available in digital format and users can browse them through the network as if they were in front of the hard copy of the specific registry. Parallel to this project of digitization and online dissemination, the General Directorate of Archives of MiBac (Direzione Generale degli Archivi), initiated a project of indexing names in registers, thanks to an agreement signed with FamilySearch International, which provides for the collaboration of numerous volunteer indexers ( click on "participates in the project" if you want to be recruited from among volunteers) . Through the portal is possible to acquire detailed information limited to the names already indexed , which represent a small portion compared to those found in the records currently online.
We trust you to continue to count on your valuable reports related to errors, inconsistencies or shortcomings browsing through the content of the portal. A cordial greeting .
