Francesco Cappadona & Caterina Napoli Marriage

Post by ItalianbellaSA »

Hi Everyone: I do hope everyone is healthy. I have more time to do researching now that we are in self-quarantine.

I am trying to translate the marriage record of Francesco Cappadona & Caterina Napoli. This would be the brother of my great-grandmother. Here is the link:
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903 ... cc=1946858

I have been able to translate the following (please correct any errors or add anything important that I could not read):

Date: Sept. 23, 1894, Librizzi

Groom: Francesco Cappadona, age 24, born in Librizzi, son of Carmelo Cappadona (living in Montagnareale and the late Vennera Matafu, was a resident of Montagnareale. Living in Oliveri?

Bride: Caterina Napoli, age 24, daughter of the late Santo and Carmela Salimeri.

I thought I had all the siblings and just heard about Francesco. I can't seem to find his birth in the family search records for Librizzi.

I thank you in advance for your time and any assistance.

It is hoped that the research I am doing helps to discover, preserve and celebrate my family history.

Thank you Livio! I found, what I think is a birth record for Francesco Cappadona. Here is the link:

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903 ... cc=1946858

I think it is dated 1894 for the birth. However, the side bar lists a marriage to Caterina Napoli. I'm not sure what this is.

May 29 1894, this is a late registration of Francesco Cappadona's birth.
On May 25 1894 Carmelo Cappadona declared that on March 28 1870 his wife (now deceased) Vennera Matafu gave birth to a male baby named Francesco.
Side note, dated Sep 23 1894:
On Sep 21 1894 Francesco Cappadona married Caterina Napoli, daughter of dec Santo and Carmela Salimeri
