Can anyone help? My husband is first generation in America. Unfortunately his father died when my husband was only 4yrs. His mother didn't associate with her in-law extended family so we have very little information. On the immigration records the Surname is Caira but some changed it to Cairo in America. However, 11yrs ago, as a newlywed, I had a conversation with a nice Italian born immigrant who kept correcting me in Italian as to what the surname really was...
So I came across this and I think it may be hubby's 2great grandfather. I can't make out the spelling to translate it on a translation program.
This is an extract of the act of death in 1895 Of FRANCESCO CACCIA

That is all you posted… you must post the next page for continuation. The next pages should have the name of his parents and his spouse.
