Came across this birth record for Maria Partanova. Presented by Maria Pagano. Maria Pagano's husband is Giuseppe Portanova (still living) but it mentions later in the record something about Nicolo. Can you clarify this for me.
# 216, Ventimiglia di Sicilia, 14 Dec 1886 Act of birth of Maria Portanova, daughter of Nicolò (26 years old, countryman) and Francesca Pagano (20 years old), born in Ventimiglia di Sicilia at 1 am of 13 Dec 1886 in the home located in Via Cardinale #27. The child was presented by Maria Portanova (55 years old, who assisted the birth) because Nicolò Portanova, father of the child, was away from home.
