Birth translation

Postby chickenwoman » 16 Jul 2010, 17:03

Could someone please translate this birth for Rocco Sanfilippo? He was born July 10, 1857.

Can you understand the italian transcription, or you need a translation too?

Dì detto (= giorno detto - nell'atto precedente)
Io Sacerdote D. Pietro Calatario(?) de licentia (= con licenze del) Parroco ho battezzato
un fanciullo nato ieri qui in Monte da Giuseppe
Sanfilippo e Antonina Ferro jugali (= coniugi) di Monte. Gli
fu posto nome Rocco. La comare fu Rosalia Bene(?)
figlia del fu Filippo Amato di Monte

The day said above (you must check the previous act)
Me the priest D. Pietro Calatrani, with the permission of the parish priest, I baptized
a baby born yesterday here in Monte from the spouses Giuseppe
Sanfilippo and Antonina Ferro residing in Monte.
He was called Rocco. The godmother was Rosalia Bene (maybe her husband's surname!)
daughter of the late Filippo Amato from Monte.

Thank you very much for the translation. Could you tell me if there are masculine and feminine differences for surnames like there is for first names?
