Birth of Natale Gianonne

Postby rootspursuits » 06 Jan 2016, 00:50

Natale Gianonne was illegitimate and born 25 December 1859, in Grotte, Italy. The attached record is taken from a very poor quality film and the handwriting is awful. Can anyone read who his mother was or any other handwritten passages. Any help would be appreciated.

There is no mother named in this record...

Here is what I can read from the part you have posted.

... at the town office in the town of Grotte, District of Girgenti, Province of Girgenti,
appeared Diega Cutaja, age 47, profession Ruotara [keeper of the wheel of the abandoned], residing in Grotte - S. Diego quarter [neighborhood], to present a newborn ...
who she declared she found at the wheel of the abandoned ... in a shirt of white muslin and ... appeared to be a few hours of age, and without any other signs on his body. (such as a note, ribbon, medal, etc. that would have been used to identify the child when/if the mother returned to claim him)

Information on the Ruota - scroll down to the last article on the right
