Help with translation

The links below are what I think is a census record from Fano Italy. I'm not sure what is says under Lorenzo Catalucci. Something about the home??

Here,

https://books.google.it/books?id=-TQqXC ... li&f=false

at page 590, there's an explanation of what the "census" means.
It is a list of the families who had to pay taxes. "Maschi collettabili" were adult males between 14 and 60.
According to what I read, the sentence "segue famiglia senza maschi colletabili" should mean that a family had no adult males (I guess they did not have to pay taxes, but I'm not sure).
I also guess that line 51 is about Lorenzo's family, composed of himself, one woman and one child (less than 14 years).
The following line, not numbered, should be a one-member family, whose name was Albanesi, and was older than 60.
I hope some other Italian mother tongue may help.

Now, one question: where did you get that "census"? Is it online? :-)
