I am seeking to learn more about my father's family and keep drawing blanks. If there is anyone who knows anything about Carlo Dimilita born approximately 1868 or his parents Domenico (spelling?) and Rosa (nee Garlanda) I would be very grateful. Carlo was brought up in Potenza, Basilcato, Southern Italy in a town called Grumento Nova. Thank hyou.
I just wanted to make the comment here, before my next post, that prior to the IG computer hard disc crash on 9/10 March 2013 when four months worth of data was lost there was quite a lot of information here about Carlo Di Milita and his lineage. If at any time in the future someone reads this forum and is researching the Di Milita family, I did copy and paste most (if not all) of the info that was posted here previously, and of course would be happy to share.
Also, if someone has time, the following is what I think it says and if someone could please verify this, correct it or add anything important I have missed that would be helpful.
“On 17 May 1902 at (time?) in a house at No 60 via M....? Di Milita Rosolia died, aged 78, Farmer. Father deceased Domenico, landowner. Mother deceased Carlucci, Agnese, landowner. Widow of Larossa, Francesco Paolo.”

Great, thank you very much for doing this. I'm surprised I misread 16 for 17 - it's usually 60 and 70 that I confuse. I've always had difficulty with the time? At least I know now that I am on the right track with my translating and don't need to go back through them all and change them. (What a relief!) Thank you again. I wonder if via Mancuso is still there?

Yes, sorry, I misunderstood you. Thank you for re-posting.
I think I'm understanding how to read the times now as long as I can decipher the handwriting. Pomeridiane is where we get our p.m. from and antimeridiane is where we get our a.m. from, which would be morning. Iere is past or after, I guess. It's actually not so difficult provided I can dicipher the handwriting and Rosolia's death certificate here was probably one of the easier ones to read. The older ones which are fully handwritten can be a challenge - so many words!
I’ve been trying to find Anna Padula’s birth record for a while now and keep drawing blanks. I have looked through both the indices and the records for Sarconi and Saponara di Grumento but haven’t found her there. She married Francesco De Milita who was born in Saponara di Grumento June 1889 (Index 47). I don’t have a copy of their marriage record.
I’m thinking that she possibly may have been born in one of the nearby towns. Could someone who has access to Ancestry.com please look at the birth indices for Viggiano and Moliterno for me and see if she is there. Thank you.
