About this project

This project is a collection of marriage records and marriage banns from the Varese region of Italy. The records are in Italian and usually quite legible. The difficulty rating of very advanced is determined by the records which are not in a pre-printed format from year 1866 to 1874 and the occasional illegibility of some records. From 1875 forward the preprinted record templates were introduced making the information easier to locate. The project is an exciting collection of invaluable genealogical information.

Each marriage record has the names and record number in the margin at the beginning of the record. It is possible that some records, which are not form based, or in other words are simply written out in paragraph form, may extend onto the next image. Whenever possible this should be checked for. A good indication of a marriage record being carried over from a previous image is that there are no names or record number written in the margin of the continued marriage record and the first marriage record for the image may begin in the middle of the page or elsewhere. It is necessary to key the continued fields from the second page of a marriage record whether by the same keyer or another depending upon who gets the image.

There are three selections in the dictionary for this field: Complete on this image; Continued from previous image; and, Continues on to next image. If the fields necessary to key for a record are continued on to the next image choose "continues on to next image". Even if the next image is not part of your image set, make this selection if you are unable to continue keying the required fields because they are on the next image. If your image set begins with a continued record choose "continued from previous image" then key only the required fields visible on your image. Do not worry about what was keyed on the previous image because the data from both pages will later be put together in one record for the individual. If all the required fields for the record that we are asking you to key is on the same image, then select "complete on this image" as the navigation.
