I received these 2 documents from a cousin yet I'm having trouble reading much of it (especially the handwritten part). I'm attempting to post here and hopefully someone can translate them for me. I realize they are long documents but I would appreciate any help possible.
As a follow up to the above linked documents...many of you won't be able to open them as I've just learned because I was only able to link with goggle...Elba has attempted to translate them but couldn't view...
Does anyone have any other ideas or could link them for me using another program?

Sorry nuccia, I would like to help you but if the immage goes bigger it goes out of focus and I can't read it,
I just read they got married in February and Lorenzo father was Domenico. Domenico was already death.
Thanks for everything folks...Elba's been trying to help me with these documents for weeks but sadly, they're not very good copies.
I just wanted to let Elba know how much I appreciate all the help she's given me the last few months. She has translated documents, listened to my constant complaining about work and helped me with my school work! Thanks to her help and support, I was able to score a perfect mark on my recent paper.
Like I said, I had some help from a very good friend! These documents are driving me insae. I'm still playing with imageshack and trying to figure out what I can do but I think it's probably not going to get any better then this! I'll email them to you if you like and you can see the difference. They don't look as bad on email (but not great either).
I never even noticed the line about Domenico's mother..will have to take another look!
