Gaetana Fabrizio Birth.jpg


Hi,

I have attached a birth record for Gaetana Fabrizio. We Believe she was born on Sept. 2, 1893 in Montefalcione, Avellino, Campania, Italy. Her Mother is Raffaela Oliva and her father is Carmine Fabrizio. We are struggling with the record and would appreciate any help in reading it.

Thank you
Gary

Hello Gary! :-)

You have the parents' names correct.

Date of the record is 2 September 1893, at 9:35 Am at the town office in Montefalcione, before the official...
Birth declared by Speranza Catalano, age 56, midwife.
Child was born at 8:10 PM on 31 of the previous month (August), at the plcae at Via Piazza dell Olena(sp?) #40, to Raffaela Oliva, and 22, peasant farmer wife of Carmine Fabrizio, age 21, peasant farmer, with whom she lives.
Child was given the name Gaetana.
Witnesses to the recording of the birth act were Luigi Straccia, 40, peasant farmer; and Pasquale Sordello, 39, peasant farmer, both residing in the town.
The declarant (Catalano) assisted in the birth to Raffaela Oliva and declared in place of the father as he was absent from the town.
The official read the act to the participants and only he signed as the others were illiterate.

T.
