Italy Gotoarrow.png Notarial Records

While church records and civil registration records, cover a majority of the population, notarial records cover only a percentage of the population. Much of the data from notarial records has been digitized going back to approx 1860, but require authorization to directly access the records.

Sometimes notarial records predate church and civil registration records, and they can cover gaps in those records. Since they contain wills, purchases, sales, and legal disputes, notarial records are useful for researching families who owned property or were involved with legal matters as well as a wealth of information on the decedent's family members and business.
