So once you’ve logged in HERE with this info:

…you should come to the screen entitled NATI INDEX. If you are looking at a weird form, click “Nati Index” on the left panel. You have the option of searching Births, Marriages, and Deaths that I’ve indexed so far, but you must be looking at the view that says INDEX after it, or else you’re looking at some form:

On the bottom right you can see right now there are over 11,000 birth records in there! I’ve noticed if you just type in something in that search bar on the top right, you don’t get all the results because it’s searching SO many records. What you should do to search is click the little magnifying class, which opens up a bunch of search fields like this:

From there you should be able to search any and all birth records that I have in the database so far! For example if you wanted to find all births with the last name “Tortora”, you would type that into the the Last Name field, and you get 30 results across 3 towns – Nocciano, Cugnoli, and Rosciano:

Meanwhile you can click on “Matrimoni” then “Matrimoni Index” to search all marriages. Click on the magnifying glass again and then you could search, for example, all marriages occurring in Cugnoli, and you get 238 results (keep in mind I’ve only done Cugnoli records from 1840-1860):

Feel free to let me know if you come across any issues. The only thing so far that I can’t seem to fix is that you can’t just search things under the search bar, you need to click the magnifying glass first and do an advanced search. Enjoy!
