Translation help needed for gr-gr-grandparents marriage info

Postby donnalynn829 » 26 Apr 2016, 15:14

Hi Forum.

I have a marriage publication for my great-great grandparents that I need help translating. It's one of many family records I was lucky enough to find while searching a database (image by image) on FamilySearch. I don't read or speak Italian, so any help is appreciated. Their names are Francesco Imperatrice and Maria Domenica D'Ursi.

Many thanks!!

The writing is terribly faded... but here is what I can see -

Record #13
Request for Publication of Marriage intention
Francesco Imperatrice and Maria Domenica D'Ursi
Dated 9 March 1872 at the town office.
Appearing before the official.... were:
Francesco Imperatrice, single, age 34, laborer, residing in Canna; son of Antonio(?) Imperatrice, laborer and of Domenica Ci???, spinner, both residing in this town;
AND
Maria Domenica D'Ursi, single, age 22, spinner, born and residing in (same town); daughter of deceased (both) Luigi D'Ursi, a peasant farmer, and Mariantonia Morano, a spinner, who residing in this town in their lifetime.
Witnesses to the record appear to be Leonardo Miraglia, son of Andrea, age 39, landowner; and Francesco Caponegro(?), son of deceased Pasquale, age 51, shoemaker; both residents of this town.

The last paragraphs are almost illegible...
They appear to identify the dates of the births of the spouses... (they are required to present their birth acts to the official)
One appears to be 1 April 1836/7(?- not sure of last digit) and also a date of 29 August 1849.
I will take a closer look, but with enlargement it does not get much clearer.

Thank you for the link :-)

I can see now that Francesco Imperatrice's mother is Domenica Acciardi
