I had been searching the Messina data,: Italy, Messina, Messina, Civil Registration (Comune).
They have the data sets grouped under either 'messina' or 'villagi di Messina' as groups of files.
Under Villagi, the data sets for births (Nate) 1893-1897, and Nati 1897-1901, and Nati 1901-1904.
Looks like none of that is indexed yet...and I just saw a link on family search home page last night, looking for help in indexing the italian data...so I guess it is still underway!
In the meantime, I'm searching manually....I hunt by my estimated year of birth, then find the specific village (that I hope is the correct one), and then scan the months. Seems like I'll have to do this until we are fully indexed.
I'm thinking about joining the indexing project..since it may also help me uncover people I'm looking for. Thank you for your help!
