Need help with "Botta" or "Botti" from Corleone, Sicily

Postby sinatra101 » 13 Mar 2013, 02:58

I am researching "Botta" or "Botti" originally from Corleone, Palermo, Italy before coming to America. My grandfather was Michele Botta (b.@1874)(his father was Vincentio) and his wife was Anna Lamantia (her father Salvatore). I'd like to get more info on their parents and their siblings. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Frank

Can you provide a month of birth for your Grandfather?

That should have been my Great Grandfather and I believe he was born in November 1874.

Thanks

Thanks, Frank, that will save me some time.
I am currently going page by page for 1874 Corleone births - very time consuming... now I can try going right to November!

EDIT TO ADD:

Birth record for GGF Michele Botti
The ink is quite faded and very hard to read...

Record #514
Dated 23 November 1874 in Corleone.
Child was presented by the midwife, Salvatrice Giugliano, 63(?), who declared that the male child was born to Leolucchina Gabriele, ???, residing in Corleone... and to Vincenzo Botti, spouse, age 34. The child was born on the 22nd at 6 PM at the home of his parents. He was given the name MICHELE.
Witnesses to the recording of the act:
Biagio la Corte, 56; Vincenzo Generoso, 26?, farmers.
