Thank You Very Much!  So, This is a record of my grandmother's birth.

Awesome...the date of birth is same as I knew and celebrated with her, April 1st.  Now I have approximate date of birth for Anna Maria's father!

Best Answer Made My Day....

Omg!  Both Nanette and Sharon's replies have valuable info.  Both of you helped me tremendously.  I've asked family (native Italian) for assistance in this translation and NADA.  For me learning something new about an ancestor simply makes me feel happy.  I never imagined I would learn of Vincenzo and Teresa's occupations.

I am grateful to both Nanette and Sharon and I Thank You!
Thanks! I think the pomeridian means pm however. :)

This translation is not word for word, but should give you the gist of it. I am still studying the Italian language and have figured out many of my husband's vital records by translating the important words.

This letter is a copy of a birth registration in the town of MORMANNO, regustered the 4th of April 1898? Some of the first paragraph is the qualifications of the nortary.

The father is Signore VINCENZO PANDOLFO, age 27, and his wife TERESA ARMENTANO gave birth to a daughter named ANNA MARIA on the first day of the current month  (April) at 10:15pm at  their home on Santa Cabrina Street. Both parents worked as Contadina, which is probably dairy farmers.

Witnesses are GIUSEPPE PERONNE, age 32, who works as an operaio, and FRANCESCO ARMENTANO, age 24, who works as a dairy farmer. Both witnesses live in this community Mormanno.

Hopes this helps! Maybe a native speaker can give you "word for word".
