Need Help w/Translation of Baptism Record ~ Santo Barretta

Postby siciliangirl2016 » 24 Sep 2016, 01:45

I think this is for Santo Barretta. For the most part, I can understand these records but I just cannot get the dates yet. Can someone please tell me what date he was born or baptized if this document tells us? I know his father is Joe Barretta but I was not sure on his mother. I appreciate the help.

I am absolutely no expert on Latin records, and need to start learning, so wait for someone to confirm and add any other info:

The mother looks like Vincenza Rappa and the baptism took place on 2 February. I am pretty sure that Eodem die, which you see at the start of the record, which means “On the same day” would refer to the previous record which was dated 2 February. Yes, Santo Barretta.

Angela, that is him!! On my tree I have his date of birth as Feb 1, 1900 but I had a different mother. This is definitely him and I do appreciate you helping me with the record. Have a great weekend.
