Need help transcribing Sicilian Records from 1800's

Post by CaterinaT » 22 Jan 2015, 03:23

I am researching my husband's ancestry and am writing to ask for help. My Italian is very limited, but I can get through the "form" part of the page - I need an expert in the language, particularly someone who is familiar with these old records and Sicilian Place names.

We are coming to Sicily in May, to his ancestral town of Menfi - I am anxious to find out what I can before we arrive.

Thank you in advance!!! :)
