Hello Gracie :-)

Here is the birth record from Potenza.
If you need a certified copy you must write directly to the Comune of Potenza

NB - I believe there is an error on the record. Father's name is listed as Rocco, but at the bottom of the record the signature of the father is Pasquale Racana

REcord #105
Dated 7 March 1905 at the town office in Potenza
Appearing before the official was Rocco Racana, age 25, a carpenter residing in Potenza, to declare that at 10:30 AM on the 5th of the current month at the place at Strada del Popolo #54, to Ersilia D'Andria, his wife, housewife residing with him, was born a male child who he presented to the official and to whom was given the name ROCCO.

Witnesses to the record: Gerardo Messina, 24, and Giuseppe Ferrara, 25
Signed by the father and both witnesses as well as the official...

Thank you so much for this information, have been searching for a long time. And can't say graci enough for the translations, as they are hard to read at best.
