Other sources in the area

We would like to highlight a file that could be useful for genealogic research: the so-called Catasto onciario (2nd half of the 18th century) held at the Naples State Archive, and which allow us to reconstruct the family books of the residents in Southern Italy, which by that time belong to the Kingdom of Naples.
