Re: Surname SPOTO

Marty I can not get any of your attachments for the above birth and death certificates.
I was trying to read the death certificate cause I am reading about how to enterpret them and wanted to see if I can interpret the one you provided but I can not open it to enlarge it.

I am finding you can't really look for what I want 1910 to now unless I write to someone in Italy. Can anyone add to t...

Re: Surname SPOTO

Re: Surname SPOTO

Teresa once again thanks so much for your interest and work. It made a huge difference its just hard to read
since it was Italian someone did interpret it and that helped a lot.

THIS IS A WONDERFUL sight for sure. Actually I have no words on how much you have helped me.
