The Ancestry Site wants to publish millions of digital copies of the Civil Registries and the millions of names present in those registries.

You are more than welcome to help us. You can do it anytime and you only need a computer with Internet access, some time to spare and the willingness to take the challenge of researching old documents, which you can browse at the section “Browse the registries”.

You may then choose one of the many active projects at the website Family Search Progetti italiani, many of them have been directly promoted by the State Archives.

The Newsroom staff is at your disposal to give you all the technical assistance you may need to open a free account as voluntary indexator and during the cataloguing process.

The most important rules have been summarized at the Guidelines for indexation, which you can find by clicking in the “Help” icon of each indexation project.
