Great-Grandpa Birth Certificate Translation

Post by seancann19 »

Hello,
I'm wondering if anyone can translate a birth certificate from Italian to English. My great-grandpa's name was John (Giovanni) Calderaro, and I know he was from Caccamo, Sicily. After hours of research, I was able to find his birth certificate online (I am 99% certain it is his - based on date of birth and birthplace). I found a website that helps me to translate some of the standard boilerplate language for birth certificates, but I'd like to get a full translation.

The link to the birth certificate online is: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903 ... cc=1947613 It is record number 10.

I'm a newcomer on this forum, so I look forward to reading others' posts!

Hi, Marty :D

The poster was looking for Giovanni (John) Calderaro, but posted an image of Giuseppe Calderaro (which you translated.)

I think the poster may have posted the wrong birth act.
#13 on the next page, referenced by Paola may be the correct one.
Here is the link to Giovanni Calderaro, born 15th January and presented on 18 January.

oh my gosh! Thank you guys! I saw "Calderaro" and I stopped searching even though I was confused why I did not see "Giovanni" anywhere.

Marty,
I am sorry that I posted the wrong picture/record, and that you subsequently did a lot of research off of my error. I knew my great-grandpa was born in January of that year, so I assumed he would be among the first entries. When I saw "Calderaro", I automatically stopped because I assumed that in such a small town there wouldn't be more than one "Calderaro" born in a year. I guess I was wrong.

Thank you Paola and Tessa for noticing my mistake!

This is the right marriage record cause it says that in the writing Vincenzo Calderano legitimized his male baby Giovanni Calderano in 1894
