I would much appreciate some assistance with translating this death record for Carmine AricÃ². Specifically the 3rd paragraph, I don't quite understand all of it. This document was in the processetti for the marriage of Carmine's grandson. Thank you.
Sig. Giudice, we knew Carmine Arico', born in Axxxxxx, in Sicily, maintown very close to our homeland. About 16 years ago the same died, and we know it because when we saw his family with mourning dresses and asked for the reason, they ensured of the death of him Arico', that [the death] was ceaselessly said in public, and we believed to it, since we did not see anymor him Arico' as usual, and his death was always ensured [confirmed]. We also believe that there is nothing in writing about the death of him Arco', because maybe the family did not care to notify the Ufficiale di Satato Civile at that time.
i can't understand the name of the town in sicily. we have 9 maintown in Sicily : Palermo (greek name Panormus), Agrigento (ancient name Girgenti, greek name Akragas), Caltanissetta, Catania, Enna (ancient name Castrogiovanni), Siracusa, Ragusa, Trapani (greek name Drepanum) and Messina.
We have 390 towns in sicily and this begins with "A" letter :
Agrigento, Alessandria della Rocca, Aragona, Acquaviva Platani, Aci Bonaccorsi, Aci Castello, Aci Catena, Acireale, Aci Sant'Antonio, Adrano, Acquedolci, Alcara Li Fusi, AlÃ¬, AlÃ¬ Terme, Antillo, Alia, Alimena, Aliminusa, Altavilla Milicia, Altofonte, Acate, Augusta, Avola, Alcamo.

I'm searching lost relatives and descendant of my greatgrandfather Vincenzo Genualdi (or Gennaldi or Genuardi) and my greatgrandmother Concetta Davola (their sons: Angela, Carmela, Antonio, Bartolomeo, Ernesto, Simone, Riccardo, Maria) went in Chicago,Ill., and New Orleans, in 1880-1920 from Sicily. Other family related : Jacobucci or Jacopucci (from Central Italy).
