Key Info:



Birth No 71: Antonino Mazzu'

Father: Don Santo Mazzu', 35 yo, traficanta
Mother: Donna Tomasa Campisi, his legitimate wife, 25 yo, living with him

Baptised, 29 May 1836

Note: The words "Don" and "Donna" in this record are titles.



Birth No 101: Angela Mazzu'

Born Mantalbano 4 September 1838

Father: Santo Mazzu', 40 yo, occupation ?

So this record is for a baby girl – Angela – (not Angelo – male name)

Thank for the correction on Angelo Angela. I have spent years reading German. It will take some time to get the hang of Italian
