Civil Registration records (registri dello stato civile) are those created by the government. This process began on a national level in 1866 when the country of Italy was officially created. At that time, a formal nation wide system of tracking births, marriages and deaths, regardless of ecclesiastical affiliation was implemented.

Currently based in Italy, many associations of genealogists and archivists projects are focused on saving its heritage preserved in Italian parishes, which is in serious danger of deterioration. Thus, many volunteers are taking data from these books and loading them up to the web.
There are also initiatives from individuals, who transcript all births, marriages, deaths, censuses and documents from civil acts conserved in several Italian communes.
