Military and Conscription Records

Military records "foglio matricolare" records begin around 1870. All male italian citizens are required to register at age 18. Information contained in them might include name, date of birth, present address, parents and next of kin names. They also may contain types of service and records of such. There are exceptions, police officers do not have to register.

The Distretti militari holds these records after the 1870 time frame. before this you will need to ask the Archivio di Stato of the province you are searching in. This may also be a good idea because the dates can vary from area to area.
