Civil registry

The Treviso State Archive holds the Napoleonic Civil Registry files, that is to say, the duplicates of the birth, marriage and death certificates and alphabetical indexes and attached files issued by the cities of the Tagliamento Department to the local Courts. The Napoleonic Civil Registry (1806-1815) includes 188 cities of the former Napoleonic districts of Asolo, Castelfranco, Ceneda, Conegliano, Montebelluna, Motta, Oderzo, Serravalle, Treviso, Valdobbiadene.

From 1816 to the Italian Unification, the Civil Registry was carried ou by priests, so the research during this period should be done at the local dioceses and parishes.
