Phillip Bongiorno and Anna Campana were born in Roccapalumba, Palermo, Sicily, Italy. The Census says “Salerno” but it’s wrong

1/8 Serbian —> 1/4 Croatian

How did it rise up to 1/4?
Only Mary is Croatian from what I can see.

Because his father being one eighth would imply he himself is one sixteenth. And he is one eighth, meaning his father is only a quarter.
