To better explain why "parvolo" refers to the child:

In general the wording for an adult male in a death act is...

Name of the deceased, aged, profession, living in....., son of ..... and of....,
husband of ..... (or widow of , or single).

If the occupation is pecoraro, which was one thought I had before I went walking, then he was a shepherd. It's another word for the word pastore and I have seen it in my Sicilian documents.

Livio,

If you are still there - can you give me your opinion on the appearance and disappearance of the prefix "Di" in atti?

For example, Francesco's atti di nascita gives the cognome as "Di Iacovo".

The atti di nascita of his first-born son, Michele, is Di Iacovo.

Two years later, his second son is Filippo Iacovo, without the prefix.

Twenty years later, Filippo's first daughter is Carolina Iacovo.

After three more years, Filippo's second daughter is Rosina Di Iacovo.

All of these are directly from the Italian atti di nascita.

Carmine, I'm sorry but I do not have an answer. I also noticed the appearance and disappearance of prefixes such as "di" and "de".
