But all I know for certain is that this (#26) is the right Vincenzo Felitti, because I can make out his wife's name (Maria Gagliardino) and, I think his parents...Mattia Felitti and Rosa Priore?. Help?

Awww...geeze...shouldn't they be using the new books by 1872? The pre-printed ones that I can sometimes make heads or tails of? If they had I am pretty sure I would know more about #111.

Thanks, Livio...this is Vincenzo, right? And this is from the 1871 book...is it significant that he died at home? Or is that it is his? Does that imply ownership? Finally, does it mention his profession?

Apparently I messed it up!
Yes it's Vincenzo the year is 1871 and he is a farmer. I underscored "his house" as opposed to Hospital (where Felice Sausto died), I understand that I should have said "at home", and we cannot deduct from this record any ownership.
