Birth Record: Carmelo Giovanni Vasta

Postby donnalynn829 » 29 Apr 2016, 18:34

Hi.

Hoping I can get some translation help for my great-grandfather, Carmelo Vasta's birth record. It's on the bottom of one page and the top of the next.

Many thanks!

Just to add to what Tessa has said:
Carmelo Giovanni was born in a house in Via Manno, No 26.
The midwife reported the birth to the official in place of the husband of (Antonina) Firro, who was unable to, because he was found to be in the countryside (away at the time).

I see the mother's name as I stated in the translation as Ferro. :-)

I do not believe that the surname Firro exists in the Comune of Agira...

Yes! I totally agree that the surname is Ferro. Please excuse my typo.
