Translation of Family Document

Postby italytoengland » 05 Jun 2003, 16:11

Can someone please identfiy the type of certificate that this is. I belive it to be a birth certificate?

The document can be seen at:
http://www.rootsweb.com/~ukancestor/images/cesaro.jpg

Also, if any one can help to translate it, I would be most grateful. I have only been able to translate parts of it, using a free translation website.

It relates to my great, great grandfather Abramo Cesaro.
Thanks in advance.

yes, it's a birth certificate.

here the transcription:

Provincia di Salerno
Comune di Tramonti

L'ufficiale dello Stato Civile certifica

Che Cesaro Abramo, figlio di Davide e di D'Uva Maria è nato nel Comune di Tramonti alle ore 12 meridiane del giorno diciotto del mese di Dicembre dell'anno milleottocentosettantuno, come risulta dall'atto N. 206 parte I serie 2 segnato nel registro delle nascite dell'anno 1871 esistente in questo ufficio di Stato Civile. Il presente si rilascia in carta libera per uso
amministrativo a richiesta del R. Consolato d'Italia di ? (Zambia?)

---------------

Provincia di Salerno
Comune di Tramonti

The civil office officer certifies
That Cesaro Abramo, son of Davide and D'Uva Maria is born in the municipality of Tramonti at 12 a.m. of 18 of the month of december in the year 1871, as results from the act N.206 part I series 2, inscribed in the birth register of the year 1871 existing in this civil office. This certificate is released on free paper (without taxes) for administrative use, on the basis of the request of the Royal Consulate of Italy in (maybe Zambia?)

Is It really Zambia? Where did you find it?

Thanks for the translation norbertogallo, that's great.

It's Londra, not Zambia. It was amongst some other papers relating to my great, great granfather's naturalization.


What would the next step be? I've got all I can this end, naturalization, marriage certificate etc.

Should I write to the civil office in Tramonti, to request the marriage certificate of Abramo's parents?

Any advice is welcome.

Tramonti is a town of the ancient 'Principato Citeriore', so there you can find civil records starting from first 1800s.
You don't know when they was married, so you can't ask for a marriage certificate without this date, otherwise your request will probably never be replied to.

From this birth certificate you know the name of Abramo's parents; you can ask for the 'estratto di nascita' that is the transcription of the act registered in the civil office, where you can find their age too.
Asking this estratto indicate the act number (act N.206 part I series 2, birth register of the year 1871).
From this data you can ask for their birth certificate and so go on.

To ask for certificates in Italy you have to write your request in italian, better sending a self addressed empty mail; don't send money and remember neither specify more that you are searching for your ancestors.
Finally, remember that italian employees aren't obliged to answer to a mail.

You can write an email to this address asking for clarifications about the preferred procedures: anagrafetramonti@tin.it
