What is in This Collection?[edit | edit source]
The collection consists of images of baptisms, marriages, and deaths of Catholic parish registers within the custody of the towns (comuni) of Amelia, Ferentillo and Montefranco for the years 1544 to 1865. Includes a small collection of hospital death records from Amelia for the years 1755-1796. Availability of records is largely dependent on time period and locality.
