Translations, anyone?

Postby john_dominic » 15 Sep 2006, 03:13

Ok, i've recieved a few documents, and i'm just looking for dates, names and locations (although I do wonder what else is on there).

If anyone can help me with these documents (it's a series of birth, marriage and death records), it would be great (since I just realized i'm a little um, "rough" at deciphering the words, even though my Italian is "ok").

If not, I appreciate the thought.

Hi John,

If you want just the names and dates - here is the information on the first document.

Birth Act #38 was written on April 21, 1851

Santo Tomaselli, of age 40, of profession industry, and of his wife, Caterina (cannot make out surname), of age 30 had their daughter, Alfia on April 21, 1851. Alfia was Baptized on April 21, 1851 also.

I'll be right back. Phone..:(

Thanks so much! It was EXACTLY what I was looking for?

BTW, was there any interesting information on that one document with a long string of written letters, or was that it?

Oh and I think "Caterina Iampiere" is "Caterina Sampiere" but that doesn't seem to be existant in http://gens.labo.net/it/cognomi/, so i'm at a loss on what it truely is.
