This website is mainly intended as a handy tool for students and researchers. It is not intended to be a genealogy site but a compilation of  manuscripts mainly found in the Archives of the Archbishop of Malta. This is an ongoing project and other manuscripts from other Ecclesiastical Archives will be scanned and uploaded.
