Tessa, Thanks for the information. I didn't have copies of the marriage record but I did know when they were married.
You solved the mystery of Alfonsa, I knew they had an older child. I found her on the Ellis Island manifest. Funny thing is that her sister and brother are still alive, but know nothing about her. I've asked about an Alfonza or Alfonso. I'm trying to enlarge it to print it out. Thanks again. I greatly appreciat it.
Here are the images of the Allegati (attachments) to the marriage record. Included are: Cover 1st Banns (pubblicazione) 2nd Banns 3rd Banns Copy of Birth Record of Rosario (born 20 Feb 1883 to Rosario, 47, peasant farmer) Copy of Birth Record of Nunzia (born 17 Sept 1889 to Paolo, 26, peasant farmer) Last image is back of Nunzia's birth record.
T, Thanks so much for all the information. I really appreciate it! On to the fun of translation! I was able to figure out that Alfonsa was actually my Aunt Frances by the birth dates I had. Hers matched Alfonsa. I'm thinking Crocifissa is my Aunt Lucy. It's kind of making sense now! Thanks again for everything. Great job.
