Italian Translation help what are the parents names? [closed]

+4 votes
I am looking for some translation help. I can pick out some stuff, but I am having a hard time reading the handwriting.

Please see the documents attached to his record. (You may have to download to expand it big enough to read)

I would like to know the name of the father and the name of the mother who I believe it says is Fagetti.

It appears two Pighetti (well three) are mentioned in the record so I am having a hard time deciding which one is the father.

I know there is a program called Google Translate. This is not about that, it is reading the handwriting.

The declarant is the first person mentioned after "e' comparso" and is generally the father. In this case, Antonio Pighetti fu Giuseppe (Antonio Pighetti son of the late Giuseppe [Pighetti]) e della vivente Lucia pura Pighetti (and of the living Lucia also Pighetti), age 22, peasant farmer.

The mother is Domenica Fagetti, daughter of either Giovanni Pietro or Giuseppe Pietro [Fagetti].

The child was born 5 Dec 1872.

The father's signature is on the second page at the end of the act.

Domenica's father is Giovanni Pietro Fagetti. Her mother was Pesola Pighetti.

Here is Antonio's and Domenica's marriage record - 17 Feb 1872 (#9)

There are allegati available for this time period but they're all out of order. But they may be worth looking through because you would get at least birth records for Antonio and Domenica (although the marriage doc gives their DOB) but you might also get death records for deceased parents.

Thanks Frank. I made the connection via a DNA descendent. My GGGrandmother was Domenica Fagetti Martinucci. She was of Uschione as well.

You seem like you might know the naming conventions of the Italians of this era. Who are the ancestors that might have the name Domenica?
It depends on Domenica's birth order among her siblings. The usual naming scheme goes like this:

First born son is named for the paternal grandfather.
Second born son is named for the maternal grandfather.
First born daughter is named for the paternal grandmother.
Second born daughter is named for the maternal grandmother.

So if you manage to track to find any records for Domenica's parents, one of them will almost certainly have a mother named Domenica.
