Postby rp76226 » 16 Jul 2012, 04:10

I have a church record for what I believe is the birth of Salvador Puma. Could anyone translate this?

Salvator di Puma son of Placido di Puma and Maria TOUGH ONE last couple letters look like asi maybe another set of eyes could help on this one maybe the mothers surname would be listed on the index.

Marty, thank you. There seems to be a second set of names on the bottom - Salvador Salvo Giuseppe? and Rosalia. Any idea who they might be? Unfortuantely I have no index. A friend who recently returned from a trip to Racalmuto went to the big church and obtained this one page for me. I did look at the entire page from which this image I posted was extracted. It would not load in Postimage because the file was too big. However, the few lines above it start with a year clearly marked as 1794, so I guess it applies to this too.

Thank you. Was Salvo the last name? It appeared between what looked like two first names. It didn't look like the woman (Rosalia)was given a last or maiden name either.

Thanks. Does that mean that Salvo is a middle name for godparent Salvador and that no maiden name was given for Rosalia?
