Vincenzo Baldi 1881 birth record in Catania

Post by greenrose »

Hi,

I am looking for help finding a birth record for my friend's grandfather named Vincenzo Baldi, born Feb 23, 1881.
We think he was born in Catania, although he listed it as Catagna.

Thank You.

This gives a birthplace of Gagliano

Vincenzo Baldi born 3 Feb 1881 in Gagliano Castelferrato to parents Francesco Paolo Baldi, 40, and Rosaria Fiorenza

Not quite 23 but the only one I found close to a match.

Hi, I've seen her name spelled a few different ways. If you can find the original name that would be great.

Annungiata Pules or Nunziata, born Jan 2, 1888 in Gagliano Castelferrat. Also Paeleo or Puleo.

thank you!! Joe

Here is a ship manifest for a Nunziata Puleo leaving father Carmelo behind in Gagliano born about 1887. Going to New York, NY, to brother Filippo.

The birth record for this Nunziata is here:
http://dl.antenati.san.beniculturali.it ... 7.jpg.html
Born 1 Feb 1887 to parents Carmelo Puleo, 37, and Rosaria Baldi

http://dl.antenati.san.beniculturali.it ... ewsIndex=0
Here is that brother Filippo born 16 Feb 1880

Not the best date alignment with what you provided and still missing a confirmed link to Vincenzo but there are no other close matches in the 1880s in Gagliano. The indices seem to use both Puleo and Puleio as spellings.
