Matteo Lo Blundo - 1570 Monreale Baptism - DAMAGED

Post by sbiondo257 »

This is an image of my 12th Great-Grandfather's baptismal record, but I'm having trouble translating it through the damage. Can anyone get any information off of it? I tried editing it a few times to make certain words more visible. It should contain the following information:

Name: Matteo Lo Blundo

Date: June 20, 1570

Parents: Matteo Lo Blundo and Giovanna Dino

Can you post a readable record as near to this as you can, so that we can see how it is structured?

I read "Junii" but can't see the day of month.
Can't see mother's surname, either.

Are the father's name and the mother first name there?

What I read (or I think to read :-) ) is
"matteo - Jan(nell)a blundu"
If you compare the record with the one above, it seems that there's something more between "f. di" and "matteo"; I think it's "q(uon)dam". That would explain the fact that the child was named after his father.
