Topic: Emigration / Emigraci?n
While looking for Arberesh in the birth certificates of Manhattan, I saw that many of them did not have a given name for the child being registered. Furthermore, about 60% of the children of Arberesh families that I was looking for, and I suspect of Italian families in general, did not get registered. Perhaps they considered taking their child to be baptized by the local priest as the registration of their child.
