Data Sourced from the LDS Index of the 1881 Census

Further research Notes

Having located the original census image for the 1881 Census for London Amelia’s surname is actually DESLANDS.

I have looked at the 1871 Census for London RG10/0158/50 and have located Amelia living at 125 Oxford Street London, recorded with surname of DESLANDES.

Copies of the 1871 and 1881 census pages for Amelia are included in the Orlando one name study, because she is recorded as an Orlando in the LDS Index for 1881.

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.
