Hello donna! :-)

Very hard to read the occupation of father even when enlarged :?

I believe the age of the father is 39.

For Angelo's mother's surname... my thoughts are CLERICUZIO - a surname found in Ariano Irpino :-)

tessa,
now that i read Clericuzio, the letters make sense and i see where i missed the hypen that splits the name to the next line.

re: the occupation of both Vincenzo & his witness Gabriel Pagano, would you mind, please translating the word....i've seen this on many records but still cannot determine what it reads.

thanks for all your help
