Baptism record for Caterina Rosaria Lentini dated Dedc 19, 1808. She was the legitimate daughter of spouses Pasquale Lentini and (Donna*) Maria Giuseppa Cupito (spelled with two t's in this document).

*Donna is a title and not her first name-

I see day 10, month September... :-)

I do not think that is a "9" before decima, as it does not resemble the "9" in the date at the bottom of the record.

The 9 at the bottom of the record is in a notation added in 1945 and was not part of the original record. BTW, the godmother was Rosa Burgese.

I am inclined to disagree. I believe this is an extraction that was provided in 1945.
I see the handwriting is identical... :-)
Of course, that is only my opinion.

Yes, it is an extraction of the original but if, in the original it was written as die 9. decima, then that is what would have been written in the extraction

September is the correct month. Have no idea why I typed December in my post above

There are no notation, the last sentence is still part of the certificate issued on 30 Sept 1845.
I don't know what is the symbol between the words "die" and "decima". I will try to investigate on another forum and come back with a full transcription

Yes it is a baptism certificate. On 30 Sep 1845, the priest certifies that he has found in the baptism book an entry stating that Caterina Rosaria Lentini was baptized on December 10, 1808. She was the daughter of Pasquale Lentini and of Maria Giuseppa Cupito, married couple.

This is the full transcription:
Certifico io qui sottoscritto arciprete Curato come perquisito il lbro de’ rinati ho ritrovato la particola sequente =
Anno Domini(ni) millesimo octigentesimo octavo 1808 die vero decima mensis septembris (...) Ego subscriptus archipresbiter solemniter baptisavi infantem natam ex legitimis coniugibus Paschali Lentini, et domina Maria Josepha Cupito, cui fuit impositum nomen Catharina, Rosaria. Comatrem fuit Rosa Burgese hujusmet loci et (...) Brunà? Archipresbiter Cupito.

Per vero ho scritto la presente scritta e sottoscritta di mia mano e vallata col solito arcipresbital suggello. Madia (o Badia) 30 Settembre 1845
Io Brunà??? Arciprete Cupito certifico

Mother's last name is Cupitò, not Cupito

I just had a look and something does not add up. She was born in 1822 ? so they year of baptism cannot be 1808 ? Could the year be something else you read ?
