Reliable Sources

A good place to start is a site with original images. One such free site is established by the Italian Government. Occasionally the site is down for maintenance:

Antenati Gli Archivi per la Ricerca Anagrafica http://www.antenati.san.beniculturali.it

FamilySearch.org has many original images in their catalog.

Archivio Storico Diocesano Agrigento: https://www.registriparrocchiali.archiviostoricodiocesiag.it This websites contains record images from all churches in Agrigento from about 1600 to the early 1900's, but they are copyrighted. It costs one life-time fee of €10. The cities are separatedly listed, and then broken down by baptism, death, marriage etc. and then by year. Most of the record groups have Indicis. It's well worth the 10 bucks. That's the good news. The bad news is that there are many things about this website that are user-Unfriendly.

Reliable Sources with Conditions

Unreliable Sources

Though Wikipedia and Wikidata contain a wealth of information, listing the article is not considered a valid source, especially for Pre-1700 profiles. Instead please go to the references section of the article to find the citations used as supporting evidence for the statements in the article. Test the validity of the citation before using it on WikiTree. Wikidata also will list a reference on a statement that may not be reliable so will need to be validated prior to using it on WikiTree.
