From Helen Billing’s weekly Family History Newsletter:
Barbara Billing has informed the Bulletin that the Trentino Department of Emigration has placed a database of birth records online at Nati in Trentino. The database contains information about 1.2 million residents of Trentino born between the years 1815-1923, including full name, date of birth, village, and names of parents. Your search can be by surname only or by first and last name in 10 year increments. Access is free but you must register for access to the site. Future plans include marriage and death records and adding the names of grandparents. With the Treaty of Vienna in 1815, Trentino was annexed to the Tyrol County. From 1815 until December 31st, 1923, the birth registers were maintained by the parishes, which also acted as registry offices. FamilySearch has just started indexing the Trento, Italy records, as well.
