Marriage Francesco Matafu & Carmela Lauria

Postby ItalianbellaSA » 11 Jun 2013, 22:05

Hi Everyone - hoping you are all having a fantastic day. I found this marriage record of a direct relative (5 generations back) for Francesco Matafu & Carmela Lauria. So far, I have translated the following:

Date: May 22, 1837 - Is this the date of the wedding?
Groom: Francesco Matafu - Age 30 - Workhand - Son of Antonino and Marianna Caruso (not sure about Caruso?)

Bride: Carmela Lauria - Daughter of Fernando or Francesco? and Carmela Monteleone? I am not sure about the the names of her parents. Lived in Librizzi?

Does it give the address, age of their parents, professions of their parents? Age of the bride?

Here is the link:

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

It is hoped that the research I am doing helps to discover, preserve and celebrate my family history.

Groom: Francesco Matafu - Age 30 - Workhand - Son of deceased Antonino and deceased Marianna Caruso (not sure about Caruso?) Looks like Caruso to me :-)

Bride: Carmela Lauria - Daughter of Fernando or Francesco?Fortunato and deceased Carmela Monteleone? I am not sure about the the names of her parents. Lived in Librizzi?

Does it give the address,NO age of their parents, NO professions of their parents? groom's father occupation I can't decipher and mother is a spinner; bride's father is a mason/brick layer, and her mother is a spinner. Age of the bride? 30
