This is not a digitization project but rather a portal through which to find what records are available for a particular parish, gain permission to research the records on-site, or through which to order extracts, certified copies, or digital images of the documents. Additionally, each one of the registers will be indexed by name and you can perform a search of the database for your ancestor's records.
The website also provides a means of searching for parishes and civil jurisdictions (pre-1901) by the name of a particular town which may help you narrow down what parishes may need to be searched.
Still in the beginning stages, there is much work to do. Currently, five regions have records within their database:
- Liguria (currently only the province of Genova)
- Sicilia (currently only the province of Enna)
- Toscana (currently the provinces of Arezzo, Firenze, Grosseto, Livorno, Pisa, and Siena)
- Sardegna (currently only the province of Cagliari)
- Veneto (currently only the province of Vicenza)
