Meaning of Saetta [sigh-ATE-tuh]: arrow

        I have not found any record of baptism for my great-great-great-great-grandfather Nicoḷ Saetta, but I know his name and approximate birth year, and the names of his parents, from his church marriage and death record, and the records of his children.  On his canonical (church) records, his name is given in Latin, as Nicolaus


       My paternal gggg-grandfather Nicoḷ's marriage record, in Latin, is difficult to read.  The names are confirmed in the index to the early Serradifalco marriage records  (right), which reads 'Nicolas Sajetta cu Leonda Migliore f 27" meaning "Nicoḷ Saitta with Leonarda Migliore, Page 27"
