I am trying to see what this says I know he died either Nov 8 1885 or Nov 19 1885, I see the date Dec 23 1882 is this his birth? I also the names Giuseppe Sgroi age 30 and Giovanno age 48 are these his sons? also at the bottom in what looks like Geatono Marino.

Thank you for all your help

Death of a child of 1 year, 9 months...

On 19 November 1885, the official in S. Giuseppe Iato transcribed into the register a copy of the death of Giuseppe Sgroi that he received from the civil office in the City of Palermo...

Yesterday I posted this small correction to Tessa's translation but then it, along with her reply, vanished, so I'm posting it again in case the OP missed it.

The date of death was actually the 7th of Sep, not the 18th (of either month), because the word "yesterday" referred to the date that the death was reported in Palermo.
