I think the 2nd word in the name field is "Agostino" in the top image.

(re: top image)

Underneath of the crossed-out listing it appears to read "brother-in-law" as the prefix.

The line above the crossed out one appears to say "father" as the prefix, with the name "Leopuldo".

So, I'm guessing the first part of the crossed-out line is the relationship of the person to who they were coming to see (even though I can't make it out).

Maybe the last name is "Lofabene"?

I am pretty sure the crossed out name is "?-father Agostino Tufabene", in Italian, the "T" hooks towards the right.

The line underneath is "brother-in-law Russo Alessandro" and the line above is "father, Leopuldo" -- probably Leopoldo

The ones above and below the crossed out line are two other persons.

Oops, forgot the second part.

The only thing I can offer here is that the second name starts with an "I". In Italian, the "I" hooks to the left. It could be "Iecitini" ?????

Not sure the first letter of Arduino's last name is an L but I believe that the rest is entini. Surname could be Lentini. What town are these people from?

Thank you to all! Mary I was thinking this was a T as well--Tufabene...is that a common surname in Santa Maria Capua Vetere which is where they are from. Maestra...thank you you are quick with the Arduino! I thought maybe the first letter was an E....but maybe not? How common do you think Lentini is in Santa Maria Capua Vetere? I find deciphering this is very diffficult because it doesn't appear their letters are consistant. i.e. the Arduino ... there is an obvious capital E above in another name, and an obvious A below in another name. I certainly appreciate all the input as it gives me more name options to search.
