I need help deciphering a record

Postby Josie07M11 » 17 Aug 2012, 14:47

Hi everyone,

I need some help deciphering this italian record from 1869. The record is on the upper left hand side of the image. Using my simple understanding of Italian and from previous research I can gather that her husband was Pasquale Sterrantino, her father was Domenico Lo Guidice and her mother was Camela Sciacca. But I'd really like to know when she was born or how old she was when she died. I think it says she was born in Taormina but died in Giardini?

Any help would be awesome!

In addition to the above notations...
She died on 16 January of the current year [I assume 1869 as you stated...but the beginning of the record is on the previous page] at 5 AM. She was a spinner [filatrice]
