I made an attempt at translation on this document. I now realize I am missing a lot and need help. See the following url:

Can't seem to enlarge this image and it is too small to be legible, at least for me. Sorry.

Erudita:

I worked on the image. Made it larger and sharpened it. Please try again. Gracie.

Tom
I only see the first page of the record. Here's the info from that page

Dated Aug 5, 1868 in Spezzano Grande at 1 P.M.
Appearing were two declarants: Biagio Parise, age 60, son of deceased Gaetano Parise; Biagio was a day laborer living in the town. The second declarant was Francesco Mancuso, age 60, son of dec Giovanni Mancuso, a peasant living in the town.Both men reported that on the 4th of Aug, at 4 in the night, in his own house on the Contrada Viale, Francesco Rizzo had died.

I need the second page to tell you his age at death and also his parents and spouse's names, if that info is given in the record.

Parents appear to be deceased (both) Felice Rizzo and Lucia Granata

I see Fedele and not Felice and still would like to be able to enlarge this section of the document. I also think the person who is age 65 is named Giovanni Greca(o). There is also some other street mentioned in the first line of this second page, which is a different street from the one on the first page. I am inclined to think that this is not the correct second page of the death record of Francesco Rizzo. Actually even the third line from the bottom of the second page mentions again the deceased as being Giovanni Greco. This is definitely not the second page of Francesco Rizzo's death record.

These documents are from microfilm available through the LDS. I plan to go back and take new photos. I want to thank you for your efforts and I apologize if I made errors in presenting the documents. But again, I appreciate all the help that I have found on this website. Tom
