It's difficult to read but Liberio Santa Maria (?) was born Jan. 7, 1866 at 6:00 in his father's house on Strada Messiala (sp?).
If you could tell us what the names are that you are looking for, it may help to read the rest of it.

Hello. The name is Liborio.. I could already translate some of the document, but there is some things that I stil did not understand.



1. "comparzo Melilo (?) Santa Maria _______ di anni".. after Santa Maria would be lui Castachio = son of Castachio ?
2. the job is "crivelliero" .. ?
3. after "maria smergani" would be "del lui serafino" ? .. what means ?
4. the name "Melilo" corresponds to Emilio .. because I have this as the name Liborio ..
Thanks a lot for the help,

Siciliano :)

Midilio/Emilio was 30 year of age when the child was born in 1866 so it's his birth year that is approximately 1836. His fathers name is Eustachio.

The only reference I could find for this profession was that of a 'crivellista' = a 'jigger'.
