Re: Finding names and information on my 2nd great grandfather and his wife/family

Concerts Grillo did not name the child. The official in the town, usually the mayor or his representative, have the child his official name. Concerts was the "receiver of the proietti (abandoned)"children at the wheel. I have added links to help you understand this. Isidoro may have named his first ...

Re: Finding names and information on my 2nd great grandfather and his wife/family

From the processetti... Isidoro's birth act. He was presented to the official by Concetta Grillo(?), the 75 year old receiver of the abandoned. He was given the name Isidoro Vaccarino by the official. http://dl.antenati.san.beniculturali.it/v/Archivio+di+Stato+di+Catania/Stato+civile+della+restauraz...

Re: Finding names and information on my 2nd great grandfather and his wife/family

The groom had to present his birth act to the official to be married. The official records the date and place of birth as well as parent's names from the birth act. I have checked the birth in Riposto from 1831 through 1833. He is not there. I suspect the town recorded the births of the abandoned in...

Re: Assistance with surnames

Livio :-) Here is the extract of birth, and the banns for Maria Caldolera Piccione, from the Processetti. While the handwriting is still difficult to decipher clearly, would you agree that the surname could be Rollo , a name that is found in Manduria? T. http://dl.antenati.san.beniculturali.it/v/Arc...

Re: Help translating marriage notation on birth record

The writing is very bad, however is as you read, a marriage. The missing words are the number of the act and something I can't read, coul be a name, seems Chiara, but different from the birth act. The marriage was in Napoli, not in the place of birth, so try to look if there are registers of marria...

Re: help with death record

The time of death is 4:05 AM.

Anti merdiane is before noon. Post meridiane is after noon.

The place of birth is (San)Giuseppe Jato, not Giuseppe Stato. Written on the record as Giuseppe Iato.

Both father and mother reside in the town but the birthplace of neither of them is given.

The top of the record is quite waterlogged and I cannot read the date, but the next record #50 is dated 18 October 1866. The two witnesses presented at the beginning of the record are Francesco Sorentini, age 32, and Antonio Noli, age 30, both farmers residing in the town. Groom: Angelo Nardozza, un...
