Baptisms - St George the Martyr Church in Prizzi, Palermo Province

Note: all entries are in Latin, so you will need to convert them to Sicilian. e.g. Petrus/Petri= Pietro, Paschale=Pasquale, Mri= Mariani, Dominici=Domenico, Antoninus=Antonino, Joanna=Giovanna, Salvatoris=Salvator_e, etc. The difference in spelling of these names within an entry is due to the form in which it is used in the sentence. Unless noted otherwise, these babies were baptized the day they were born.

29 May 1891 Salvator, son, born to Francisco Nucrio son of Salvatoris, and Francisca DiReto dtr of Nautii. Godparents were Joseph LoBue son of Paschalis and Carmela Orlando, a married couple.
