translating 2 baptisimal records

Post by Kaylie » 09 Apr 2011, 02:04

According to records found on the familysearch site, I recently discovered the following information in the Baptisimal records for Prizzi, Italy (1836-1857:

Salvatore Petralia Born 1853
Father: Castrenze
Mother: Marianna

Page 168 (Image 467)
Record 781

I am also trying to find a marriage record for him. He married Epifania Boccellato; how can I find a marriage record for him? What kind of information do I need in order to search?

I am also requesting your kindness in tranlating the baptisimal information below also found for my husband's greatgrandfather (Castrenze Petralia):

Baptisms 1815-1835
Image #8
Year of birth: 1819
Father: Salvatore
Mother: Maria
Page 69 - image 81
Record 108

Thank you

Italy, Catholic Church Records - Palermo - Prizzi San Giorgio Martire - Battesimi 1836-1857 - Image 467 of 552 ... 9002_00940

Record 781 does not exist, there is record 281 related to

Giuseppe (Joseph), not Salvatore, Petralia Born Oct 16 1853, baptized Oct 17
Father: Castrense
Mother: Marianna Casta

To find Giuseppe's marriage record you should know the year of the marriage and consider that the marriage occurred in the town were the bride lived.
