Michelangelo Alessi

Meaning of Alessi [uh-LACE-ee]: from the Greek, Alex, Alexander


        In 1766, the estimated year of birth of my great-great-great grandfather Michelangelo Alessi, civil birth records were not kept, nor have I yet found a church baptism record for him.  His birth year is estimated from his age given on various documents including his marriage record, and the birth and marriage records of his children, some of which also give the names of his parents, Calogero Alessi and Grazia. 

Matrimonii (Marriages)

       This is a church record.  Such records were ostensibly in Latin, but here, some Italian is mixed in.  For example, "fu" is Italian for "the late", while the correct Latin would be "defuncta".  There are also many Latin abbreviations.  The original record is followed by a more legible transcription in Latin, including abbreviations, then by a lengthier Latin transcription with abbreviations expanded, and finally by a translation into English.  I have shown hyphenation where necessary, although the original does not use hyphens.  Words I could not understand or translate are shown in red.
