I am hoping someone who is good at this will help you shortly. It is a lovely certificate. I was interested to see the profession, ombrellaio means umbrella maker.

Livio ~

Wow!! Thank you so much!! This record is so wonderful :D

Ercole Motta the baby in this record moved his family to Rome between 1884-1886 and opened up a shop there that sold handmade umbrellas and fine leather goods. Ercole died in Rome in 1900-1910 and that is when my great grandmother could not keep the umbrella shop and she and her daughters moved to the United States. Now I am wondering where was that shop in Rome?

I am so thankful for your help. Grazie!!!
