Help with Birth/Baptism Record

Postby Biff83 » 12 Jan 2012, 01:14

Can someone verify that the following document records the birth of Petronilla Mancuso, daughter of Giuseppe Maria Mancuso and Francesca Maria Maruca of Feroleto Antico on 11 January 1850. I think I just found my gread grandather Antonio's sister on the Catanzaro records on Family Search! :shock: Use the zoom function to blow up the image.

Hopefully, I'll be able to locate the processetti/allegati for my great great grandparents. :D

Another sibling of my great grandfather Antonio, a brother Pietro Gaetano. Is the date of birth 4 Jul 1848?

I think she was born on the 10th. After Petronilla's name it looks like "nata ieri".
Baptized on the 11th...

Thanks bunches T.

I'm plodding my way through the images on Family Search for Feroleto Antico looking children or marriages of Giuseppe Mara Mancuso & Francesca Maris Maruca, and Salvatore Mascaro & Mariantonina Nicotera. Slow going but the rewards are worth it.

On this birth record for Maria Concetta Mancuso, is the father Giuseppe Maria Mancuso di Pasquale? Looks like that to me. If so, I've moved back one more generation! :D

Biff did you notice that they used a form where the printed year is 1843 and not 1845????

I did notice that but the handwritten year of 1845 is correct. In checking the birth records for various years, that happened fairly frequently but in most cases the correct year was handwritten over the preprinted year.

Thanks for your help.

Looks like my grandmother was named for her aunt. Birth record for Fenicia Mancuso.
Is the birthdate 29 Jan 1843?

Thanks Livio and T.!

Still checking the birth records for other siblings to determine guesstimate for year of marriage. Hopefully, Giuseppe Maria and Francesca Maria were married between 1840 and 1842 since the processetti only go back to 1840.

One more:

Raffaele Mancuso, born 28 Apr 1841?

https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/T ... c=12834623

Looking more and more like parents would have been born before 1840. :cry:

Still looking.
