Causes of Death
In August of 1999, I wrote to the state civil office in Castellammare di Stabia asking for the birth record
of Salvatore Lanzaro. The response was the document below, an estratto or extract of the original document.
In other words, someone from their office transcribed limited information from the original document.
They would not send me a copy of the original. Salvatore was born on January 1, 1874. His parents were Giuseppe Lanzaro
and Petronilla Bonifacio. I have long assumed that the person extracting the information spelled the surname
as Lanzaro instead of Lanzara becuase that is how I spelled my name.
Thanks to the Mormon Family History Center in Utah and their FamilySearch.org website, I now have a copy of the original document. This solves the question regarding the spelling of the surname. Scroll down below the Estratto to view it.
