Carmella Cappadona Birth Record

Postby ItalianbellaSA » 08 May 2012, 01:43

I think I might have found my great-grandmother's birth record. According to her immigration records, it is stated that she was born in Librizzi. I have her death certificate, which states she was born in 1874. Can someone please translate this record for me to see if I have the correct person. If the record is my great-grandmother, maybe it will list the names of her parents.

If someone has the time, please translate the record as detailed as possible for me. I thank you in advance for your time.

I checked the entire year of 1874 and could not find a Carmella Cappadona in the birth records. It prompted me to go back and look at the one I found and check the dates. My grandmother immigrated in 1913 as a widow and her age states she was 46. When I did the math it comes to 1867! So this IS my great-grandmother's birth record. Is there any way someone can please see if you can fill in any of the blanks above (Carmelo, son of deceased ____;don't know if you couldn't read or it was left blank) Also, if I can get the spelling of her mother's name. Do you think the last name could be Munafo or Munafu?
Thank you so much. This has given me so much more information than I ever thought I would obtain. I am so excited - what a wonder Mother's Day gift this is! Thank you all so much.

Sue,
the name of the deceased father of Carmelo was left blank; the Italian wording is: "E' comparso Carmelo Cappadona figlio del fu d'anni vent'otto"
The name of Carmela's mother is Vennera Matafù, as Tessa already stated.
