Not sure if this is my family, but some of the names in the record are the same names I have in my tree (Francesco Matafu, Antonino Matamuf & Carmela.

Please translate as best as possible. Thank you in advance for your time.

Thank you, I'm not sure if this is a relation, but I will keep it in mind, just in case.

Off the subject, but I was wondering if accurate death records were kept of those who perished in the 1908 Messina earthquake. I was told that my great-grandparents (Antonio Crifo and Angela Aprile (or D'Aprile) were killed in the disaster. I can't seem to find their death records, so I am beginning to think the rumor was true.
