On this page you will find the transcribed index of the Non-Catholic Civil Births of Livorno from 1818 to 1865. The transcribed index follows the original spelling of names with the exception of diacritical marks. The index is comprised of 6666 single entries and a little over 1000 family names.

NOTE: If you are researching, for example, the DE CASTRO family, you will find several entries of interest: CASTRO / CASTRO (DE) / CASTRO (DI). All particles (like DE or DI, DELLA, etc.) have been put after the surname inside parentheses, as in the original register. Several surnames were originally transcribed in many different variants, i.e.: ABULAFIA, ABBULAFFIA, ABOLAFFIA, ABULAFFIA. Another example is the confusion between the letters H-K, as in HABIB-KABIB, HAEMMERER-KAEMMERER, etc., so it’s advised to search thoroughly through the register to find all the related entries.  Sometimes you will find “creatura femminina” or “creatura mascolina” to indicate a stillborn child (respectively female or male). The word “incognito” indicates an unknown father. Also, if you landed on this page directly from a search engine, please check the main page about these registers.
