|Fantastic website ----- does anyone know of anything else like this??? Maybe for Puglia or Calabria?|
I have some pages for the Catastini or mini-census from Corato that were sent to me by an Italian who lives in Germany ---- he was on the BariGEN group and he was kind enough to send me about 10 pages with my Cognome when he did his own research. It was neat to see the info, but unfortunately there were no links to parents, only the property owner and his property that was listed, I was not able to make any connections to my ancestors.
The Archivio in Naples has the original Census books for many towns as supposedly two were created --- one for the Comune or Provincia and the other was to be sent to Naples. Someone who does research in my FHC has gone to the Archivio and has viewed the 300 year+ book for his town ---- no indexing, etc. so it took him quite a while but he found his family info.
