This month we are exploring Italian civil death records. We are doing a deep dive into a typical Italian death record so when you are looking at your own ancestor’s record, you will know exactly what to look for, even if you are not fluent in Italian. First, let’s look at what to expect when you start researching death records. Like birth and marriage records, death records are recorded in annual volumes in the Italian community where your ancestor died along with a copy recorded at the Provincial archives. In some locations, records will exist as early as 1809.
