Here is a quick translation from me. I'm sure there are others on here that can do a better job. Hope it helps. ---MaryMena
I did not get letters from you (...?) . Now I have received two at the same time and so I am pleased that you are all in good health. I, also, am in good health along with Lucio. Dear Father, as you (explained ?) in the first letter that Fonzo does not have room for me. Father, tell Fonzo and all the sisters-in-law I am very comfortable where I am. I have good nieces/nephews/grandchildren to assist me and also room to let me stay indefinitely. I asked you to ask to see what you would answer me. I know everything (?). Father, don't be offended. Carlo is right. Then, Father, I did not want to do it to my deceased sister. They let her die in the hospital. You must realize that they could do that to me. If they would to that to me, I would not come here. With what my niece/granddaughter Gerardina is doing for me she deserves a lot of......
This is an official transcription of the birth act #94, year 1909, city of Guardia Lombardi. The transcription was made on March 21, 1932.
Alfonso Gerardo Angelo GIALANELLA, was born in Guardia Lombardi (province Avellino), Vico Alpestre #6 (this is the street name), on July 18th 1909 to Agostino GIALANELLA, 25, tailor and to his legitimate wife Antonia CARUSO, housewife.
The birth was announced to the city hall on the 21st of July 1909 by Agostino Gialanella.
Witnesses to the birth act registration were Gaetano Scavone, 48, peasant/farmer and Gaetano Coraggio 72, shoemaker.
The original document was signed by Agostino Gialanella and the witnesses.
Here is page 2. Again, this is not perfect. Maybe others can correct what I couldn't figure out. I will do pages 3 and 4 later today.
p.2 .....the money that Carlo has, only .....? brings me from under (?). You, the American, tell it to the sisters-in-law. Dear Father, it's true that here there are no luxuries, but now Carlo is coming and I am happy to stay here, since I see what the nieces/grandchildren are doing for me. Then, dear Father, you must also think that (you?) were born in Italy and there isn't the beauty (richness?) of America. Therefore, my first son was born and he didn't get anything. Don't think that I've forgotten. Now, think that all your friends from before come to see me and they say --- your father sends you beautiful things from America, and money --- I always say -- yes. But until Carlo returned to America I had nothing, and so, Carlo sent me everything, but not you. Dear Father, you only think about those grandchildren, and your children. I am nothing to you. Of course Carlo speaks badly of you, he is ......
Page 3 .......right. I know everything to make those small packages of coffee I know everything that you gave to the other children. The Americans wrote and told me everything. Now I told you that I didn't like what you told me, but, Father, don't get angry. I told you that you should send them ....? to my sisters-in-law, don't ...? and so I think of you and I kiss you, your dear daughter, Lena, and your grandson, Lucio XXXX
Dear Uncle Agostino
I'm answering your letter in which it pleases me very much that you informed/warned? me, I understood you. Moreover, if you have any more to tell me, say it, it will all stay in my heart. On this, dear uncle, I should consider you like a father and so if you want to tell me......?
Page 4 ..... your daughter Lena wrote to you a little angry but it's to say it to the sisters-in-law. For me, what you write to me I will not tell her as long as you warn me. And so I hope that you are well and all in your family, as we are all well including Aunt Lena. I love her so much. I do everything for her. She has said that she is happy to stay here. She doesn't want to go back (....?) Later we'll see. Dear Uncle, Aunt Lena says that Uncle Carlo (....?) and not to spend the money to help her, and that what I do for her (.....?) they would not do, so she wants to stay here. As for me, I don't know, if it's as they say, yes or no. I don't have anything to say to them. I send you greetings from my husband and children, and I kiss you. Your niece, Gerardina. Greetings to all your children and daughters-in-law and grandchildren, answer.....
