Re: Manifest Help

Simone, The manifest image provided by the Ellis Island site is not as good as the same manifest image provided by FamilySearch. Once you have a name (assuming that it is indexed correctly) and an arrival date, you can work through Family Search to get the superior image. If you are not already fami...

Optimizing Images from Anetnati

Optimizing the resolution of images from Antenati Some of the problems we encounter are due to images that are not as clear as we would wish them to be. By visualizing the best possible image, these problems can be mitigated to some degree. What follows is a trick that I stumbled across a while back...

Re: Finding Occupations before Civil Records

Sal,

I haven't seen occupations in the church records, so my best suggestion is to do what I did, find traces of your people in the subsequent civil records for birth, marriage, and death.

Re: Need help with Latin church records

All, Thank you for your attention to these documents, which seem to have complications that I hadn't imagined. It's a lot for me to digest, so it will take a while. Matt and I will be sharing notes in the coming days; it would be complex to post up all of my Caporrimo research here, as it's not read...

Re: Need help with Latin church records

These translation requests are part of a larger and more complex request for assistance from several weeks ago, which has not yet gotten any replies. I've broken it down into smaller pieces to see if that will work. There are three Latin church records I need full translation help with; I put in par...

Ignazio Caporrimo - One person or two?

Hello all! I'm stuck on a few little pieces of a big puzzle, and hopefully can benefit from a few more eyes looking it over. Basically I'm trying to determine if two people with the same name are the same person. There are two Latin church records I need help with. 1. Ignazio Caporrimo 1769 birth to...
