There are many illustrations of actual Italian records from the 1800's to going back almost 1000 years, and he explains what each is and what the records say. This author covers the history of surnames as well.
With the information in this book, it would be virtually impossible for someone who's ancestors were Italian not to discover their heritage.
I strongly recommend this book.
Using just this book, a subscription to POINT journal, an Italian dictionary, and a Latin dictionary I was able to go through the LDS films of my grandfather's ancestral town and in a few months easily trace most of his lines back to the 1500s.

The font is a bit too difficult for me to read and, therefore, reading is not that pleasurable. There are not enough translations of documents.Published 13 months ago by sad dad

The book was not what I was after. It was more a history of Italy . Rather than, the steps to find an Italian ancestor.Published on October 9, 2013 by PHYLLIS FICKETT
Good historical information about Italian records, what they are, how they are called and look like. The addresses in the Appendix A and B are very usefulPublished on August 27, 2013 by Robi Fallani
