Corleone record help

Postby bvbellomo » 14 Jan 2014, 15:38

I came across this looking for something completely unrelated.

Unfortunately, with the resolution and handwriting, I can't even figure out if this is a death or marriage, what year, etc? Does it say he was born in Prizzi? Is it possibly Polizzi? Does it list an occupation, wife or mother?

My 6th great-grandfather was Vincenzo Bellomo, and my 5th great was Emmanuele. Since Sicilians named children after parents, a lot of my family was named either "Emmanuele son of Vincenzo" or "Vincenzo son of Emmanuele". Bellomo is not a common name in western Sicily, so I bet this is a relation.
