Today, my guest post at the Italian South blog tells you all about my first trip to the diocesan archive at Novara, Italy. I’ll let you read that post to find out the particulars of diocesan records, but for this post, I’d like to add that Italian diocesi are starting to put their records online, so you definitely want to check in with your ancestral diocese web page every so often, to see if they are following suit.
The diocese at Novara, for example (which I mentioned in my guest post at Italian South) now has baptismal record extracts from 1820-1869 available online at the following link: http://www.novaria.org/siti/ASD/chiesa_cattedrale.htm
If you find records online for your ancestral diocese, please mention it here, or send me the link to your blog, and I’d be happy to help spread the word to other researchers! 🙂
