Italy, Torino, Torino, Civil Registration (Tribunale) - FamilySearch Historical Records/Known Issues
| This article lists issues previously reported for this collection and
may provide solutions or workarounds to those issues.
Known Issues[edit | edit source]
Question 1[edit | edit source]
Question 1: When I search the index, I sometimes have trouble finding a name because the Italian titles were put in place of the Surname. How can I find my ancestor?
Answer 1: Although a reasonable attempt has been made to delete ALL honorifics from this collection, there were several instances of different spellings of the honorific "s" which – as a result – caused the honorific to not be removed. Ex. "Cavalier" vs."Cavlieri" [both variant spellings of the honorific cavaliere]. Those Italian honorifics – with variant spellings – remain in the published index.
Examples of these honorifics are the following:
- Avvocato (attorney)
- Barone (baron)
- Cavaliere (cavalier)
- Conte (count)
- Don (male noble)
- Donna (female noble)
- Dottore (doctor)
- Geometra (surveyor)
- Ingegnere (engineer)
- Marchese (marquis)
- Senatore (senator)
Question 2[edit | edit source]
Question 2: When searching this collection, I received a details page with no birth date. How do I find the birth dare?
Answer 2: Within this index are numerous entries for “corrections” to birth records vs. actual birth records themselves. These “corrections” (rettifiche in Italian) may contain only a subset of the information that an actual birth record may contain. The data contained in “corrections” depends largely on what was being corrected – ex. the spelling of a name/surname; the date of birth; the name of a mother/father, etc. The collection consists of indexes, with no images, to civil registration (stato civile) of births within the custody of the Torino Courthouse (Tribunale di Torino).
