Translation help for Birth Record

Postby neva » 22 May 2009, 18:27

Hi Everyone,

This is my first post here. I am currently researching my Italian ancestry in Sicily. Would someone be able to assist in translation of the birth record of my great grandfather Cologero Ardizzone from Menfi, Sicily? I have attached a record in jpg format. Any assistance is appreciated.

The document is dated on Jan 30, 1872 (not 1882) at 10 A.M. in the town hall of Menfi.

Also the address was 112 via Spedale and not #29.

I cant quite make out the year but here are some notes of what I can make out. Hope this helps:

30 Jan 1872?
Rosario Ardizzone aged 42 of Calogero (Rosario's father who has passed away)
Profession Contadino
Living in Menfi etc
Presented his son a baby boy born on 29 Jan
Mother Catarina Sampone aged 25 of Antonino (Caterina's father)
Living at Capo di ? (the st name I think but cant read all of it) No 112
Naming the baby Calogero

Then there are the witnesses names.

the document reads: living in the house of his own habitation situated on via Spedale number 112. The word you are reading as capo is casa or house. The mother's last name is Sansone and not Sampone as your have written.
