I'll give it a try.

On the 29th of April 1862 in the town hall of Castelbuono before the mayor appeared Grazia? Sciabba, 46, a midwife, who stated that male child was born to Giuseppa Scotta?, 30, and Pietro Failla, 30, profession ?, on the 29th who was given the name Mariano

Ty. Some of the writing on these records are so bad.
Can you answer this for me, when you see da fu by the parents name. Does that mean the parent is dead?

Athena:

In answer to your query here, yes when you see the word "fu" before someone's name it means that s/he is deceased. If you were to see the word "furono" before the father's name, and the mother follows, it would mean that both parents had passed.

Fu (singular) literally means "was"
Furono (plural) literally means "were"

Hope that helps.

Angela
