A Bit of History

When the Italian laws for registering births were established in 1806, custom dictated that the father present the baby, to announce its birth, to the Ufficiale dello Stato Civile del Comune di Casalduni, Distretto di Pontelandolfo, Regione di Molise.  Later, Campobasso became the Province.  After 1861 with the unification of Italy Casalduni and most of the nearby villages  including Pontelandolfo were under the jurisdiction of the Province of Benevento.

Nicola d'Blasio's Birth

On 21 September 1825, Filippo, the son of Lorenzo and Teresa Corbo, went to the Ufficiale Stato Civile to announce the birth of his son, Nicola, to Giuseppe Pasquale Corbi, the Mayor of Casalduni, in the District of Pontelandolfo and the Province of Campobasso and the Region of Molise.   Filippo is 31 years old and his occupation is listed as bracciale (day laborer).   He and Antonia, 29 years old, lived  on Santo Nicola Street.    Witnesses Filippe, Salvatore Corbo and Nicola Molinara mark their "X".  Nicola is baptized at Santa Maria Assunta in Cielo Church on 21 September 1825.
