Question 2[edit | edit source]

Question 2: Even when I am signed in, I cannot always view images, but get a message that the images are not available. Is there a way to view these records?
Answer 2: Italian Data Privacy rules prohibit viewing the following records: All birth images must be 100 years or older; all marriage images must be 70 years or older, and all death images must be 70 years or older.

If any record on a digital folder contains images that fall within these cut-off dates, they may not be viewed. For example, if birth records that fall within the last 100 years are on the film, the entire digital folder is restricted.

The Historical Records collections will be updated each year to show new unrestricted records. FamilySearch respects and strives to adhere to all privacy laws respective to preserving and providing access to genealogical records in its collection.

Question 3[edit | edit source]

Question 3: When I go to print or save an image, the buttons are gray and it will not let me either print or save. Is there a way I can print and/or download from this collection?
