Birth Notes: On the Naples-to-New York: part of a voyage which originated in Bremen
[Germany]: on 9th August 1893 at 36 degrees, 30 minutes North and 28 degrees, 23
minutes West, at 0.15 a.m. [12:15 a.m. right after midnight!], aboard the
steamship Weser in route to New York City, a female child was born. She
was named Filomena and is the daughter of Saverio Selvaggi and Rosa Selvaggi
DiLeonardi [sic] both of whom come from Baragiano in the Province of Potenza."
"The notice of Filomena's birth took 11 months to get to its ultimate
destination: Baragiano. First it went to various ministries in Potenza where it
was translated into Italian, and then it was forwarded on to Baragiano where the
registrar dutifully transcribed it into the town records. Saverio and his wife
and children were still citizens of the town at that point, so Filomena's birth
needed to be included in the register". Translation of record courtesy of Penny Nugent
