Historical State of the Family or Stato di Famiglia Storico

If you are searching for information on your Italian family, the most useful document is the stato di famiglia storico (historical state of the family), which contains both parents and children with complete birth, marriage, and death information, including also those who died or moved away. We obtain this certificate from the Ufficio di Stato civile (Office of Vital Records) of the town or city; however, these records are not complete for periods before 1911, which means that they have to be constructed, researching each birth, marriage, and death record separately. This can not be done by the Records Officials because they must tend to their daily municipal duties for the community and do not have time to do genealogical research.

Therefore, for records prior to 1911 it is necessary to send a researcher to the Archives of the Provence and to the Comune to research each birth, marriage, and death record or your ancestors.

We have offices in Italy and we send our researchers to the appropriate city or town to access the records and photocopy the old registers. We provide you with copies of the original registers and we also translate the old handwritten text into English.

The cost of this record is based upon the number of family names @ $25.00 each. Costs will range from $250.00 to $500.00.
A deposit of $250.00 is required.

This is the information that can be gathered from these records:
  • Full name of the head of the household
  • Full names of all members living in the same household
  • The relationship of each member to the family
  • Civil status
  • Place of birth
  • Date of birth
  • Sometimes, the number, part and series of the birth act is also indicated

Sometimes, you can find additional information such as the name of the father and the mother for each person listed and the profession as well. Moreover, there can be a section called annotazioni (notations) where events such as the death date or the migration date can also be mentioned.
