birth record # 310 - Argia Verginea Raimondina Coretti
i've a few questions about this record.
1. Argia is the correct spelling of the child's name? Yes
2. if i understand the annotation in the side bar, the last name is corrected from Cordetti to Coretti on the 19 March 1913. is this accurate? Yes
3. Adelina Purcaro is the mother, a landowner, wife of Alfonso Coretti. Is it Alfonso who is age 26 and an elementary teacher? yes
4. I realize that the seond half of the record is harder to read, i would appreciate a general translation. The declarant (Lucia Mastantonio, the midwife) has made the declaration of the birth and presentation of the child as she took part in the birthing, and the husband of Purcaro was not able to make the presentation because he was away in the city.
thanks so very much donna
And there is also a notation about her death... November 10, 1952
tessa, thanks so much for your efforts. i was pretty sure of the explanation re: who presented the child but, i wanted to make certain i understand why the name Purcaro was written. most appreciative. donna
