Looking for info on my grandmother Pellegrina Dell'Aqui

Postby dchiocchi » 13 Feb 2009, 22:52

I believe my grandmother was born either in Avellino or in the vicinity of Avellino. Her NY marriage license which is hand written and difficult to read, list her birthplace and it appears to be " Iderrs", I attached a copy of the marriage license so maybe someone else might be able to make out the name of the town. I have conflicting birth dates, one is 29 Jul 1887 and the other is 7 May 1886. Her father was Pellegrino Dell'Aquila and her mother was Luisa Matarassa. Any help would be appreciated. I am leaving for Europe on 2/15 and would like to be able to look for some records there but I need somewhere to start.

The term IDEM means "Sounding the same" as the town on the other side of that line which is Avellino I believe. =Peter=

If you compare the last letter to the other written N within the text,
it appears to be IDEN, Identical.
Just my opinion....

The term IDEM means identical but in legal terms IDEM means sound the same. IdeN is not operative here. =Peter=

IDEM = Ditto, the same. In this case it stands for "Same place", therefore the birthplace is Avellino.
