Indexing status


Civil registry

The Pesaro State Archive holds the Napoleonic Civil Registry, in which the birth, marriage and death certificates issued by the cities of the Pesaro District from 1808 to 1813 have been gathered, as well as similar registries issued by the parishes from 1861 to 1865. The Population Census (1853-1857) is also preserved.

Army census

The Pesaro archive holds the Extraction and Recruitment lists of the Pesaro (classes from 1855 to 1916) and Urbino (classes of from 1909) districts. A lacune from 1917 to 1920 has been noted, but we can still find a complete series of the province of Pesaro-Urbino from 1921 until 1944.

Recruitment number and military draw number

This institution holds the draft cards from the Pesaro District (classes of 1839-1870; 1914-1940) and its alphabetical lists. We would like to point out that the military records of the years between 1870 and 1899 and the Navy draft cards from 1901-1913 are held at the Ancona State Archive, while the draft cards from 1900-1913 are held by the Ancona Documental Center.


The inventoried sources are available for consultation at the study room through name databases issued by the institute for the main series of Pesaro and Urbino.
