Where was Projetto placed after abandonment

Post by bsanocki » 11 Jun 2019, 22:45

I am trying to discover where my great great great great gf was living after he was abandoned in 1820. I am unable to tell if he lived in an orphanage or was cared for by a family, from the documents attached. The documents are from his marriage processing papers in 1855.

Also, wondering if it was considered demeaning for someone to marry a foundling in Italy in 1855.

Thanks for any help or insight, it's very much appreciated.

This is the link you should have posted

http://dl.antenati.san.beniculturali.it ... ViewsIndex 0

Just so you know, the records you posted were the second page of Luigi's birth record, the death record of the husband of the bride, and a list of witnesses at the marriage. Those pages will not yield the info you want.

Unfortunately, I can't help you with the translation work today. Hopefully another volunteer on this forum will help you now that they have access to the correct records.

I don't know if you already know what Luigi's birth record says; however, he was found under an oak by a woman named Angela Briglia, a 50-years-old spinner, on Aug 19th, 1820, in a place called "Finaita" (?) on the border of Viggiano. The baby wore sackcloth bandage and cap, and linen shirt. On his body there was a paper sheet saying he had not been baptized yet.
