Catasto Of Montalto 1748-1749

The Catasto done in Montalto began in late 1748 and was completed in March 1749. All people living in Montalto during this time are contained in the Catasto. Please note, anyone living in Vaccarizzo was not included in this Catasto. The Catasto was done as a tax record and includes all members living in a household and things they had they were taxed. For example olive trees that derived an income from it's bountry would have been taxed. I am working on indexing all the names in the Catasto so you can find a name and view the page about that person by clicking the link. Until I complete that, you may view the entire Catasto by clicking the link: Catasto of Montalto.

Church Records, Santa Maria La Castagna, Montalto Uffugo

Church records of baptism are available here for the years 1746-1912. These records are beautiful, high resolution photographs from the original church registers from the Santa Maria La Castagna section of Montalto Uffugo. Please note that during this time frame the comune of San Sisto and the Frazinone of Bucita (which now belongs to the comune of San Fili) fell under the jurisdiction of Santa Maria La Castagna in Montalto (Uffugo was added to the town name after the unification in the 1870's). People from those areas attended these churches.
