Angela di Giugno

.
Born: 22 December 1831 ~Serradifalco, Caltanisetta, Sicilia
Married Calogero Alessi: 15 April 1853 ~Serradifalco
Died: after 1908

Meaning of di Giugno [dee-JOON-yu]: of or born in the month of June
 

        From about 1820 through 1860,civil birth records in the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies reported the details of all births on the left side of a two-page form, reproduced below.  On the left side of the form was documentation that my great-grandmother Angela di Giugno was born on 22 December 1831; the right side states that the record had been sent to the local church, and that the Parish had confirmed the baptism of the child and the date of baptism.   The translation shown below after the actual civil record has been condensed to one page. 
       Angela di Giugno is special to me.  I was named in memory of my mother's sister, my aunt Angela Alessi, who, according to the Sicilian naming convention was named after her grandmother, this same Angela di Giugno.  So, in effect, I too, am named after Angela di Giugno.  My great-grandmother was not born in Italy, as Italy did not exist in 1831.  She was born in The Kingdom of the Two Sicilies, during the reign of Ferdinando II.

      The 1853 civil record of the marriage promise reproduced below, for Angela di Giugno and Calogero Alessi, covers four pages.  To the right is a summary.  The form is in two columns, on the left showing the Record of the Solemn Promise to celebrate matrimony, while the right-hand column is entitled 'Indication of the subsequent canonical [church] celebration of marriage'.  Essentially, the left column gives the details of the civil promise made at the Town Hall, while the right column simply confirms that the couple was married in church on the following day, and that civil and church records were cross-referenced.  Click on the images at left to see the original documents.  This record is only the promise to marry, but it contains much more information than the actual marriage record made by the church.
