I am in 1853 (as far back as I have gone so far) and came across a grouping of documents I have never seen before. It has something to do with births. This document is for Rosa Napolitano, the daughter of my great great grandparents, Filippo Napolitano and Caterina Nicastro. Can someone translate this so I can understand it? Does anyone know what this is? There was a notation on the film that these are filed in the state archives in Cosenza (Province now but district during this era). Thank you> Here is a link to the document:

Hi Cathy,

I believe the document is a civil record recording the baptism of Rosa.

The child was given the name of Rosa.

I, undersigned, certify that the above mentioned child was baptized today January 23, 1853.

Thanks Livio and Biff! WOO HOO!! Now I have the name of the church!! Previous birth acts stated that the Church was in Vaccarizzo but did not name the church. Since Vaccarizzo had at least 2 churches, I thought I would never know. This is an interesting document. I wonder why they had this. You had to prove you were baptised?! Shocked I wonder what happened if you did not get baptized?

Hi Cathy,

I didn't know if you have an address for the church, but if it still exists, it should be listed here:

www.parrocchie.it/inde...occhie&id=

I didn't realize that you ancestors were close to Vaccarizzo ----- you can see it on the next mountaintop from San Giorgio Albanese --- were are pisani Wink
