Published Articles

Since 1896, the Waldensian Historical Society has published a bulletin of scholarly articles. Many of these deal with the life and times of the people, including studies about the Exiles (including the Second Exile in 1698-1699.)

The articles were in French until the modern nation of Italy was again reunited, well into the 1800s, after which they switched to Italian. If you don’t read either of those languages, you can benefit from several of the articles by scanning the pages for your ancestral surnames. Of course, just because someone had the same surname as your ancestor, you shouldn’t merely assume the person is your ancestor; you would want to use the notary and other records in order to verify that.the person listed is indeed your ancestor.

The Family History Library in Salt Lake City has this journal. The call number is International book 945 F5. Specific volumes would also be available through the Interlibrary Loan system.

Here are the titles of sample articles from the Bulletin:
