The Ancestors Portal also aims to make available the names of the people mentioned in the digitised documentation that can be freely consulted in the Portal.

All users can contribute to increasing the number of searchable names on the Portal by participating in the indexing of documentation.

To participate, all you need is a device connected to the Internet, a minimum amount of time available, no time constraints, and of course the desire to measure yourself against reading documents from the past. You can choose to collaborate in any of the projects presented on the Family Search page Italian projects, some of which are promoted directly by individual State Archives.

For guidance on indexing rules, please consult the Indexing Guidelines.
