Tessa -

Thank you for that quick translation. The interesting fact in there is that Anna Bindolillo, 74, was the midwife for the delivery.

I have from another record that Placido's mother was Anna Biondolillo who would have been about 70 at the time of this birth. Do you know if it was common for a woman to go by her maiden surname after her husband's death (i.e. Vincenzo)?

Italian women keep their maiden surname even while married. :D
