US Civil Records

A US birth certificate that emphasizes a few errors that may be found in "official" family records. Please note that this was a delayed birth certificate - filed in the late 1940's, well after the actual birth. Also notable is the fact that a municipal official did not create this misinformation - a family member unwittingly made these errors.
1. Both of the parents names are misspelled.
Michael Coco in the US was Michelangelo Coca in Italy.
Luisa Pagluca in the US was Maria Luisella Pagliuca in Italy.

2. The town name is misspelled.
Murlugano is Muro Lucano in Italy.

3. Michelangelo was probably not a farmer.
On other US records he is listed as a former shoemaker. In actuality he was probably a stone mason. Here in Chicago he was a guard at Cook County Jail.
