Thanks for writing. I replied following your excerpts below.

The key hear is who was born IN 1780 and who was born BEFORE 1780. I
know about Matteo because of the death record of his son Giuseppe in
1840. On Giuseppe's death record it said that he was age 60
(conclusion: born about 1780). The death record stated that he was the
son of Matteo Perfetti and Giulia Ritacca. Since these are his parents,
I assume they would have been born and married before 1780, the year
that their son was born.

The pages that I have posted with civil records are typically those
civil records that I have taken the time to document every record of a
certain type of a particular year, (example: all 1875 marriage
records.) There are some exceptions where I have included a
miscellaneous record within a year, this occurred when I first designed
the web pages.
If you are concerned about lack of documentation of your relatives, do
not fear, as all the records that pertain to your relative are indicated
on the respective on-line family trees themselves.
For example, if you look for Carmella Scornavacco's page on the family
pedigrees and scroll to the bottom of her page, you will see footnotes
that indicate references to data that I received from you in text form
as well as reference to the situazione di famiglia forms that you faxed
over to me.

Keep in mind that documents of birth marriage and death between
1810-1910 are also available on the LDS microfilms. I believe that the
offices in marano will only give you extracted information of the
record, rather than a zerox of the original document.
When are you going to Salt Lake City? If you go, there is a book there
that I would appreciate your looking up. It is supposedly a story about
the history of Cosenza and 31 of its noble families. I would like to at
least get a list of these noble family names.
