Birth Record Translation

Post by rp76226 »

Please give me the key genealogical facts of the birth record and the side note for number 198 for Carmelo Puma. I do not see a mother named, but on the side note there is a Salvatrice Mattina.

Hi RP - in the second paragraph of the record, right after "al numero...da..." there's a phrase that seems to say "he has his union with an unmarried woman, neither kinsman nor similar..." The man referred to appears to be Antonio Puma, who made the presentation to the mayor.
