Foglio di Famiglia (Family Sheet) from Tusa questions

Post by jbattagliasmith » 04 Jan 2016, 03:54

I have just joined the group and have been researching my family history for many years. I have just begun to dig into the italian side of the family. I would love some help if anyone has any insight.

I have a copy of the family sheet from my Great Grandfather who was born in Tusa, Sicily in 1864 (if I interpreted correctly) that my sister was given by the "town hall" in Tusa. Sorry do not know what the correct term is.

I have translated the form but the writing is hard for me to read, especially since I can't read Italian.

Anyway it says - Cognome (family name) as Battaglia which is my grandfather's last name and below Nome. Here is where it starts to confuse me - it lists Pasquale (which is my great-grandfather) followed by two names Luigerio Maria. I am not sure if they are siblings or his second/third names. This says it is a family sheet but only seems to list Pasquale's marriage and birth.

I could attach a copy (I think) if that would help.

Thank you for any help you may have.

The two names that follow Pasquale are probably the names of HIS parents. That's been my experience at least.
I assume the other names have names that follow also. This way you can pick out which are siblings/children/aunts etc.

To all. Thank you for you help and thanks for the offer of helping to help some more. I will post the image if I can get it to work. There are a few things on it that i can't read maybe someone who can read Italian will be able to make it out.
