About this project

The Varese Deaths project is an amazing collection of records containing important genealogical information. Not only is there death information, there is also birth information, parental information, and occupation. The difficulty level is very advanced as the records are in Italian and, at times, may require extra effort to find the appropriate information in the body of a record and to read the handwriting. From 1866 to 1874 death records were free-form handwritten. From 1875 forward the preprinted templates were introduced making the information easier to locate. On all records the name of the deceased and the record number appears in the margin at the beginning of the death record while the death record date will be in the first line of each record.

Each death record has the names and record number in the margin at the beginning of the record. It is possible that for some records, which are not form based, or in other words are simply written out in paragraph form, that they may extend onto the next image. Whenever possible this should be checked for. A good indication of a death record being carried over from a previous image is that there is no name or record number written in the margin of the continued death record and the first death record for the image may begin in the middle of the page or elsewhere.

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 are on the same image, then select "complete on this image" as the navigation.
