Hello. I found my g-g-grandfather birth record on LDS film. Could someone help with translation? I believe his name is Antonio Natale Pollastri,born Dec.24,1850 in Civitaretenga. All the other names are confusing me. Thank you very much.http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a193/ ... rthrec.jpg
www.tuttitalia.it/abruzzo/89-navelli is the website for the Comune in which Civitaretenga is only a part..a "frazione", an absorbed hamlet or neighborhood into NAVELLI. The address to write to is under MUNICIPIO and the office is the UFFICIO DI STAO CIVILE.

Antonio Natale Pollastri
born 24 December 1850 at 11 AM to
Giuseppe Antonio Pollastri, 40, farmer and
Carolina di Laurentis (sp?), 23, spinner
at the house of Giuseppe Antonio Pollastri.
Witnesses Ferdinando Napoleone, 56, farmer
and Fillipo di Tommaso, 44, farmer.
There is a "footnote (1)" by what would be the father's name - and it reads Angelantonio Pollastri with same age and occupation. In the right column the (1) notation reads Giuseppe Antonio Pollastri.
Antonio Natale was baptized at Church of San Salvatore on 25 December.
The left side of the document is the birth record and the right side is the baptism info.
The left side the document is record #31 dated Dec 24, 1850 at4 P.M. Giuseppe Antonio Pollastri,age 40, a farmer, appeared before the town official of Civitaretenga to announce that a male child, named Antonio Natale, was born to him and Carolina de Laurentis, on the 24th of Dec at 11 a.m., in the house of the registrant. Carolina was 23 and a spinner. Both were living in the town. Witnesses were Ferdinando di Napoleone, age 56, a farmer, and Filippo di Tommaso, age 44, a farmer, both residents in Civitaretenga. They were witnesses who intervened in the present act and were produced by Signor Giuseppe Pollastri.
The right side of the document is dated Dec 25th in the parish of San Salvatore. Baptism was administered by the parish priest on the 24th of Dec 1850 to Antonio Natale. On the 25th the parish priest sent the information to the town officials who, in turn, recorded it on page 31 of the volume of documents.
Thank you everyone for your help. So Giuseppe Antonio and Carolina Delauretis are definitely the parents of Antonio Natale? So these are my g-g-grandparents ...back another generation!!!!
Would it be an error if they wrote Angeloantonio on the birth act where the father's name goes? I know there were Angeloantonio Pollastri's in Civitaretenga also but I don't know how they connect up to my family yet. On Antonio's marriage record it states Giussepe Antonio as his father so I think it safe to say that he his the father.
