Help needed deciphering birth document

Post by suz1154 » 05 Mar 2012, 05:23

Can anybody help with the areas that are marked in red boxes? Hope this is right. Seems like I always have trouble figuring out how to link to the photo:

Thanks.

Can't enlarge your photo without lots of distortion :-(

Can you try posting it using an image-sharing site such as http://postimage.org/
Browse to open your image, check "family safe", then UPLOAD
COPY the "Thumbnail for forum (1)" and PASTE it here...


For starters... here's what I CAN read... :-)
(top to bottom)

profession - ?
next looks like "maschio" - "male child"
next is "di ????" (it would be her [Vincenza's] father's given name- "of ...")
next states that she lives with the "declarant" (dichiarante)
profession "come sopra" - meaning "as stated before
giorno "oggi" - meaning "today"
mese di "sopra"? - meaning "above"
alla casa "di detto dichiarante" (???) - house "of the declarant (Giuseppe Aliseo)"
Right colum.....
Parroco di "questa ????" meaning Parish of "this ????" -[looks like ANTONIO to me]
nel giorno "ventisei detto mese" - meaning 26th of the aforementioned month"

Thanks for the help. In a prior suggestion somebody suggested using Photobucket, so I always have. I didn't realize you couldn't enlarge the document in Photobucket? I know it helps to enlarge. I enlarge, and edit all the time trying to find what is easier to read/make out. I will take your suggestion Tessa and try PostImage next time.
