Vital Records issued before 1866 are in churches and each city has more than one church. Therefore, having as much information as possible helps in the search for the certificate. My Euro Citizenship can help you to search all certificates in USA and Brazil, as well as entry records in the country and, with this, gather as much information as possible to find the correct city where the certificate is.

Certificates after 1866 are more accessible and easier to find, as they will usually be in the comuni. In addition, many state files already have their entire collection digitized and some even in a database.
