Cappadona Carmelo Death Record

Postby ItalianbellaSA » 16 Sep 2013, 22:07

Hi! I have been working so hard trying to get more information on my tree. I decided to look in another city and found a few more facts. I found the death record of my great-great grandfather, Carmelo Cappadona!

https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/T ... 1033210884

I have been able to translate:

Name: Carmelo Cappadona
Day of Death: June 30, 1989
Born in Patti, resident of Librizzi
Age: 58 (?)
Widower of Vennera Matafu
Son of the late Luigi and the late Giovanna P______?

I can see it does give a street address, but I cannot understand the writing. Please check my information and correct or add anything that I omitted.

I thank you in advance for your time.
It is hoped that the research I am doing helps to discover, preserve and celebrate my family history.

There is a street name-no number on the house-in the record. I see Contrada (not sure about the beginning of the name-ends in "forna"-Bistuforna (sp?). I can't find anything close in spelling.
