Comments added to civil records years after

Postby Oakfield » 30 Oct 2013, 19:44

Hi. A relative's birth record has comments added in the margin years after the original entry was recorded. Possibly a remarriage or a death? Could use help translating. Please see attachment. Thanks!

The Sep 19, 1907 annotation states that Gaspare was legitimated after the Marriage of Giacomo Madonia and Grazia Di Corrao, marriage celebrated 17 May 1901 Act nr 48.

It is very likely that Giacomo and Grazia were married in church when Gaspare was born. They could legitimate their child only after the civil marriage.

It is still weird that in the birth act the father's name appears to be Gaspare.

Thanks for the translation. Of course it leads to more questions. I have "tribal knowledge" that Gaspare's parents were indeed Gaspare and Grazia DiCorrado (now revealed as DiCorrao). Gaspare had two other younger male siblings. All of them named their first son Gaspare. Is it possible the father Gaspare died and Giacomo married Grazia? Maybe there was a divorce? I did uncover a relative's handwritten attempt at a family tree that showed the father to Gaspare's younger brother (Batista b. 1897) as John Madonia. Hope you don't mind but I have more to relay on this topic. Thanks again.

You should find the original legitimization record. Di Corrao could be a mistake done by the clerk.
