Rosario LaSelva Atti di Nascita

Postby EMTLP » 09 Sep 2016, 17:04

s there any more information that can be gleaned from this Atti di Nascita of Rosario LaSelva. The translation states that he was finally given to Vita Crescenzia Genovese. Is it normal to delay finding a home for an orphan. Does it name her husband if she was married? How does an official give someone a name? Would it hint to who his parents might have been? Thank you.

He was born March 27 1889.

Vita Crescenzia Genovese, 35, was the "Receiver at the wheel of the abandoned" where she stated she had received the child, whom she was presenting to the official, at 4 AM that day. The official is responsible for giving a name and a surname (cognome) to the child, which is usually a "fantasy" name, a name not associated with names in the town. Sometimes the surname "Proietti, Trovato, Esposito" is used to identify the abandoned.

There was no delay that I could see in the record. She received the child (anonymously) at the Ruota di Proietti (wheel of the exposed/abandoned) that morning. She stated that there were no "signs" left with the child for later identification by the parent(s), and that the child appeared to be about 2 days old. The official authorized that the child be put in her care for care and nutrition.

You will notice that Vita Crescenzia Genovese also presented the children in the next two birth acts, as well as the child in the previous act, and they were placed in her care.
