Am I reading this correctly?

Post by searching » 15 Jun 2016, 15:58

Hi, I recently tracked down my great-great grandfather's birth record, but my Itailan is very poor, and I can't make out some of the document. My current guess is that it says Antonio was presented on April 14, 1860, in Latina. His father was Raffaele Gallucci son of deceased Pasquale Gallucci, and his mother was Catterina di Nocera. I can't make out their occupations or their parent's name. It looks like Raffaele was about 42 farmer, and Catterina was 38, Antonio was baptized on April 15th?

What am I getting wrong or missing?
