Can someone help with the attached death record? I believe the death date is December 30, 1822. What I am having trouble with is interpreting the name of the person who died and the relation to the other people mentioned in the record.
On December 30, 1822 at 3:pm in front of me Luigi Siandulla(sp) mayor and civil state officer of Bivona, district of Bivona, valley of Girgenti (nowadsays Agrigento) appeared Maestro Giovanni Sciabica, aged 29, profession ????? of the kingdom (I read Crivaro and could be Scrivano, clerk), livinf in Bivona in the Sanbuco Quarter and Maestro Vincenzo Sciana (sp?) aged 35 profession shoemaker of the kingdom, living in Bivona in the aforesaid quarter, ho have declared that today of the month of December, year as above, at 12 died in his own house Maestro Vincenzo Sciabica husband of Maria Spallino, born in Bivona, profession Crivaro, living in Bivona, aged 80, son of the Mestro Gaspare, profession Crivaro and of Ms Rosa Gippetto xxxx spouses.
According to the law we went with the witnesses to the dead person and we have recognized tat he was actually dead. We have then written this act in the 2 registers and we have read it to the declarants and we have undersigned it.
So if I understand this correctly Giovanni Sciabica was the one who notified the authorities of the death of Vincenzo Sciabica.
Vincenzo's wife is/was Maria Spallino.
Vincenzo was 80 years old.
Vincenzo's parents where Gaspare Sciabica and Rosa Gippetti.
There is no reference of the relationship between Giovanni and Vincenzo.
So if I understand this correctly Giovanni Sciabica was the one who notified the authorities of the death of Vincenzo Sciabica. Yes, Giovanni Sciabica and Vincenzo Sciana Vincenzo's wife is/was Maria Spallino. Yes, she was alive when Vincenzo died Vincenzo was 80 years old.
