Random Genealogy

I spend a lot of time paging through digital archives. A lot of time. These books and loose papers are the ones that aren't indexed and are searchable only by locality and time period. I've uncovered a wealth of information in those digital images, but clicking through each page of a record set is time consuming. And it's disappointing to finish the book and not have found anything useful to your search.

When I'm researching, I collect far more information than will ultimately become relevant to the search at hand. If there's anything more tedious than reading through a 300-page book of hand-written records, it's reading through a 300-page book of hand-written records for the second time as you try to re-locate something you disregarded on the first pass. So I over-gather information to avoid back-tracking. What isn't useful to me, however, might be the very information that someone else has been unable to find.

Below is random information from a recent research project. It's from a snippet of the ten-year index, or indice decennale, of civilly recorded marriages in Vieste, Italy, between 1886 and 1895. Select records are available digitally through a FamilySearch family history center or FamilySearch affiliate library. Those locations are not always easy to access, though. Maybe someone searching for their roots in Vieste, in Foggia, Italy, will land on this page and find this information helpful.
