Let me give you a tip on searching. I am just fulla tips since I have been idexing records.

Dont give up..your person is most likely there..spelled incorrectly.

If your name is "di something" try it with de, try it with it spelled as one word, no space, then the opposite. Remove the di totally.

Also, I see a very big problem with vowels. Of course, every name has them. Change every vowel, even if it looks ridiculous to you. I see people putting a's for o's. i's for e's, u's for double e's and u's for a's. Another thing to look for is s and r. People mix those up...and t and L and sometimes S. F and P is another one very common...along with F and T...and Z and S. For names with "dalla" try "della" same for dal and del.

I dont know if these searches allow you to search with only a few letters. There are a lot of abbreviations on these records. gio, gio batta, domco, franco. The indexers didnt do them, the people who wrote them did.

Right now, I am working on italian deaths and marriages for piedmonte for ancestry. These indexes include the town names. If they had to search by those, nobody would find anybody. I am taking my best guess, when entering those.

Anyway, I know most of you know all of this, about searching. But, I figured it might help a new person, if they wander in. Your name is there..you just cant find it..lol

Most of the people - especially for the later years are not up yet. For Montalto no deaths and only 2 marriages were found by me. For the years that are up of births, none are near complete. I'm not sure how they are doing this but they have only just begun. I know of only 2 people working on this (from my correspondance with the Archives) but I'm not sure if it's 2 people for the whole province or just Montalto. Some very popular surnames have nothing up at all yet. Be patient, they will get there. As for me, I will continue to put Montalto marriages up on The Cosenza Exchange but will not continue the births and deaths. I will no longer work on Rende. My Cosenza Exchange is paid through February, 2010 so I will keep it up until then but let it go after that. By that time it will have outlived it's purpose.

I think you would be silly to let it go. Your images are much better then theirs and you have extracted so much info..and its much more accurate. Plus it makes sense the way you have organized the site. It could be used to as a compliment to the archive site which is clearly inferior and they charge for records. You need a magnifying glass to see the images.

I would have expected more from them...

Don't worry Nuccia - my work will not be lost - merely moved to Montalto Uffugo.Net! You don't really think I'm going to let all that work get lost do you?! Shocked I will finish the marriages then stop. Who knows how long it will take them to get all the marriages up and without those it is almost impossible to trace the families. Although I have found some really interesting things in the death acts... hide I will not comment on their work, however, I will say I do not understand how they could put so many men's names up for the mother's names! Shocked *wonders if they are reading this and if I will ever get any document I request again*

Municipality of MONTALTO UFFUGO. Volume number 1-PRE, document number 16 page -

Oh, yes, I forgot to mention. I have never seen her surname in the Montalto records for anyone but her. Now I know she must have come from CORIGLIANO CALABRO, LONGOUCCO, CORIGLIANO OR CERCHIARA DI CALABRIA! How long would that have taken me to discover?!!! (does another tarantella)

Thanks,

There is a possibility the site is updating. Lets wait a few days and see. Remember, Italians are still in holiday mode so they may not even be aware there is a problem yet.

Yea..you're pushing. Although I am trying to get as many records from different towns as I can. I have lots more coming thanks to the help of some wonderful people that are willing to contribute. I have the indici for Cardeto 1809-1865 coming as well as a few other towns. Pretty cool, huh?

Tony,
You make your own password. However, I did have problems registering with my "regular" email so I had to register with my other email account.

Tony,

Try opening a gmail account (www.gmail.com). I found your email provider tends to block alot of legitimate sites or sends the information to the spam box. Or check your filters on your current account. I was able to register with gmail and receive a password in about two minutes.

Let me know if it works.
