Very hard-to-read birth record - help!

Postby dmauer » 12 Nov 2008, 02:06

Hello, all...

I've got a pretty bad film here -- just my luck that the Family History Library's copy of the records all look nice and sharp except for the one page with my ancestor's birth record on it :)

There's really only one piece of information I especially want, which is the father (Salvatore)'s age. And since I'm not familiar with Italian numbers, I can't make it out.

I know it's in this section, marked by the question marks:

Ufficiale dello Stato Civile del Comune di _Salina_
`e compars _Di Giorgio Salvatore_ di anni _?,?_ domiciliat


Here's the image:

Any help would be very very greatly appreciated! Thanks,

Thanks so much! If it's not too much trouble, what are the other dates/times on the form? (I have a birth date from another document as 7 Jan 1889; does this record agree with that?)

Thanks again,

I make out the date of the form as 188x, 8th of January. The last part of the year is illegeble, but doesn't have any 'd's, 't's 'or 'l's in it, so it could be 'nove' (nine).

And further down, it gives the birth date as the 7th of the same month.

The document's date is January 8, but the birth date is January 7.

i agree with edward, it is mille(1000)ottocento(800)ottanta(80)nove(9). the swoop up on the end is identical to other locations on the document where the letter "e" is more clear.

Thanks so much everyone. Luckily the dates all seem to be lining up perfectly with other documents, so I think I've successfully made it back one more generation, into the 1830s. Off I go to order more films from LDS :)
