Help with a baptism doc

Postby chickenwoman » 03 Dec 2014, 21:05

Would you please help me out with the translation of this baptism. I am mostly interested in the, what I guess is the Godmother's name. Was her name Rosalia Bona the daughter of Filippo Amato?

Thank you,
Diane

The date of the baptism is missing from the top of this record. It would be on a record further up on the same page.

This is what I read:

Rocco SanFilippo, son of Giuseppe SanFilippo and Antonina Serra, spouses of Monreale, was born yesterday. Godmother was Rosalia Bona(sp?), daughter of deceased Filippo Amato of Monreale.

Thank you Erudita. I have the date, but I wanted to make sure that I could get in close enough to be able to be read, so I cropped it.

Hi Diane
I'm glad you have the date because too often posters are putting up cropped church records, and not giving us the full page, so that we can determine the date of the record in question.
