Need help with marriage document

Postby leryan » 19 Feb 2011, 22:29

I am having trouble with the hand written sections. I need parents and place of birth for groom. Also there is a lot of writing on the bottom section but I'm not sure if that is important. Any help much appreciated. If I need to upload better pics I can.

Hello and welcome to the forum-

the groom, Alessanrdo Michele (Aldi???), was born in Siracusa but was a resident in Castelcampagnano. His parents were deceased Domenico Aldi (sp?)and Luigia Campagnano (not deceased)

He was age 23 and a contadino (peasant/farmer)

at the bottom-

the dates of first and second marriage publications (like the banns of marriage)-were Dec 5th and 12th. Those publications and other documents (required for the marriage-like the birth acts of the prospective spouses, death records for the two fathers) were inserted into the volume of the allegati in the present register. Also presented was the consent of the mother of the bride being that the groom was of adult age.

witnesses were:

Bertolucco Della Morte, age 65, a property owner and Matteo Della Porta, age 37, having trouble with his profession, but he did have a town position. Both were residents in the town

at the very bottom of the document it states that the present register (the marriage register for 1875) contains 9 acts of marriage and that, on Jan 1, 1876, at 8 a.m., the town official of Castelcampagnano closed out his register for the year 1875.

The town official read the document aloud to those who intervened and were illiterate.

Thank you so much! I ordered these film rolls from the Family History Library and really had no idea I would find any information on my gg grandparents. Death certificates for both had no parents listed and I had hit a wall. Now I have a great place to start. Alex and Maria Aldi thank you!
