Hi Dolores

Just to add to what Tessa has already written. We differ on Giovanni d'Avino's occupation? (I had already typed this up a wee while ago and was researching a couple of things.)

Birth Record No 98: Alfonso d'Avino
25 October 1873, 10 am, Frigento
Giovanni d'Avino, son of Carmine, 38 yo, Sartore (tailor), living Frigento, presented a baby boy who he reported was born the day 24 (October 1873), 10 am, to his wife Filomina Guerriero??, daughter of Liberato, at a house located in this village, Strada Sparanzella (Via Speranzella? See below), which son he gives the name Alfonso.

Witnesses:
Liberato Guerriero??, son of Silvestro, 49 yo, Tavernaio?? (Innkeeper)
Michele Stanco, son of the late Pasquale, 37 yo, falegname (carpenter/joiner), both living in Frigento.

The witnesses did not sign as they were illiterate but the declarant, Giovanni d'Avino has signed.

Here are some links to Via Speranzella:

Thank you both, Tessa and Angela. For the record, Giovanni is listed as a tailor on his other children's records. Might he have changed to a shepherd at some point? Thank you also for the links, I like them!
Grazie,

Dolores

You are very welcome Dolores, and I am happy you like the links too. I guess anything's possible, and it could very well be Pastore. I'm always open to correction, and that's how I learn and remember best. I guess another pair of eyes could help, and also of course further research.

Angela :D

That's how I learn also..........I suspect this Alfonso died before 1878 as he had a brother also named Alfonso, who was born in April 1878 who may have immigrated to the U.S.

Dolores

Hi Dolores

Yes, you are correct, he died the year before his older brother was born, aged four years old. So sad - I really don't know how these poor people coped, so many of them often having multiple children die :cry: Alfonso's death details:

30 August 1877, 8.45 am, Frigento
Appearing were Giuseppe Capobianco, 28, barber, and Giuseppe Laurino, 32, peasant farmer, both living Frigento. They reported that at 9.20 pm yestereday (29 August 1877), at a house in Via Salita Speranzella, No 18, Alfonso di Avino died. He was aged four, born and residing Frigento, son of Giovanni (di Avino), Sarto (tailor) and Filomena Guerriero, housewife, both living Frigento. It says that Alfonso was Celibe – never married.

Witnesses: Marciano Cancelliere, 36, contadino e Francesco Genua, 33, Calzolaio, both residents of Frigento.

Yes, I agree that it reads "sartore" - I misread it as "pastore" on a small screen :-)

Dolores: You are very welcome, Dolores. Indeed, very sad. I spent some time a few months ago with a very sick little baby in hospital - all tubed up, and needing oxygen etc - absolutely heartbreaking. Praise God, he recovered and bounced back and is now doing all the delicious, exciting, interesting things little babies do. We are so fortunate we live in the time we do with modern hospitals etc . Parents back then would have had to watch their precious ones slowly die. It doesn't bear thinking about.

Tessa: Thank you for the back up. :D

Angela :)
