Yes, there probably are errors. I have a couple of people b. 1749 that should be there but don't appear. All in all, I'm glad Jason was able to find someone to do the catasto and that I was able to get a copy from him. I hope he'll have the same sucess with the getting the pre-1800 baptisms. I'm already putting aside some $$ for that one now.
I just received the LDS film 1173753 on early 1800's BMD for Itri, so hopefully I'll be able to make a few links between the families on the catasto and more "recent" ancestors.
I look forward to learning more about the taxes.

I would swear that there are errors in the Catasto 1754. A Ruggiero is one
example. His wife's last name I 've never
seen in any Itri record, yet some
of the other microfilm data matches his sons and givies his wife as Agresto.
There just no way to prove it. Overall the microfilm data and the Catasto
are in good agreement.
I'm in Florida until March 17. Home I have, in Italian, some notes from the
Interner that explains somewhat the taxes in Italy during the early
centuries; what I am I saying--it's taxes in Itri. I 'll try finding it
again on the Internet.
