Update to Florence Archives revision

As communicated through News and notice on the Portal, it was necessary – in recent days – to delete the records and images of the Florence State Archives, in order to proceed with their replacement with digital objects and revised and integrated content.

For Florence, 53,930 registers and 2,830,066 images were usable: that information is published again – today – with revised and/or corrected data, where necessary. Most importantly, they are supplemented with the addition of the Decennial and General Repertoires and 1,739 new registers and 188,669 new images.

By accessing the Institute page, it will be possible to consult 55,669 registers (1804-1874) and 3,018,735 images.

Broken down into 5 Funds:

  • Census (1841)
  • Napoleonic civil state (1808-1814)
  • Pre-unification civil status (1815-1865)
  • Alphabetical decennial directories (1808-1837)
  • General alphabetical directories (1838-1865)

  1. Hi Ann, I am trying to get my husband his dual Citizenship. His nonno was born in Prato, came here in 1910 & I have a US “Alien Report” showing he was not a citizen in 1941.
    I’ve heard he has to send for the Birth Certificate of his nonno to Florenz, rather than Prato. I’m not sure if that’s true or not. Would you know where to send for it?
    Second, do you have to send any of your own personal or parental documents to ask for the Certificate? & does it have to be notarized?
    Not sure if things have changed, as I have Dave Zerga & Steve Saviello’s instructions from the 1990s. Thanks . . .
