Birth record of Grandfather Domenico Gallardi

Postby Parma » 01 Oct 2012, 20:03

I have tried unsuccessfully to translate this document. I can figure out a few words but the script from 1886 is very difficult. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Would you be able to tell me if he was discharged to someone or someplace? Was it a hospital that brought him to register his birth or an orhanage? Trying to see if I can go any further with this. Also I am sure he was probably baptized Catholic but not sure where to start looking for something like that. Thank you again for your help.

He was discharged at the "Congregazione di Carità", the organization where foundlings were left or taken at birth. The act says there were no marks on him (writings, labels, or any object). The one hope would be to see the "allegati di nascita" (birth attachments) if available. One more hint would be if they had given a name with a "meaning"; for instance, a surname similar to the one of his parents. In fact, sometimes parents were only officially unknown, but in reality they were only people who could not take care of their children, so they informally asked the child to be given a "traceable" name.

Thank you. Where would I find the "allegati di nascita". Is there a place to write to? Would it be kept in the Archives or at the town level? Rumor was he was the child of a high official but I've been told to take that with a grain of salt. Also was he born in the town of Caserta or the provence of Caserta? I can only hope he was given a traceable name!! It has taken me all these years just to get this far! All relatives have been long deceased.

Would anyone be able to give a full translation of this document. I would like to have it to be able to give it to my children along with the original. Thank you.
