Giacomo, the Web Assistant of The VGS Italian SIG

Hi! It’s me, Giacomo, the VGS Italian SIG Website Assistant.

It has been six months since I have been in Italia, and I miss it. I decided I should get to work and improve our Website. I want to share with you what’s new.

I just finished inputting links to the 137 Italian Record Collections to be found on Family You can see these records if you search by the following topics:

    1. Family Search
    2. Comune Records
    3. Courthouse Records
    4. State Archives

Also you can Search by Region

Additionally, soon we will have the option to search by Province, once I build a page for each province and a master index page.
