Catholic church marriage records usually list the name of the deceased first wife (but not always) and the parish of birth of both parties.

from the site:

http://www.cilentointour.com/laurino.html

Benedetto Sangiovanni

Nato a Laurino agli inizi del 1800, fu capitano del IV battaglione dei militi della Carboneria di quel Circondario nel 1821.
Ricercato attivamente dalla polizia fu latitante per lungo tempo.
Nel 1822 fu condannato a morte in contumacia dalla Corte Criminale di Salerno.
Nell'agosto 1824 fuggi su un legno americano a New York. Fu esiliato a Londra ed abitò a Brington ove acquistò notorietà come scultore.
Nell'esposizione mondiale di Londra gli venne assegnata: "la medaglia d'oro di Prima Classe" con l'opera raffigurante un cervo braccato da tre cani. Fu anche insignito dell'alta onorificenza di cavalier di San Giorgio.
Dal 1827 al 28 fu in Francia, da dove venne subito allontanato a causa delle sue idee politiche.
Ritornò a Brington, ove morì il 13 aprile del 1853. Quel Municipio gli eresse un monumento nel cimitero.

Thanks a million to Pink 67
You are amazing . . . all of the research you came up with.

I am trying to read the articles written in Italian, that are in the links that found.
Is Benedetto's name Giovanni Benedetto Sangiovanni according to the article?
And is Giosue Sangiovanni his father's name.

In the picture at the top of the article, it has the name Giosue Benedetto.

Do you have any suggestions on how to research the ancestry of Benedetto.

Thanks

Thank you annette, I'm always happy to help... :D

From what I read Giovanni Benedetto Sangiovanni was born on 1781 in Laurino and was the younger of 4 brothers. The Giosuè on the ancient photo was his older brother.

I would advice you to contact the persons of that site, I'm sure that they will be able to help you in your research...
Good luck!
Laura

I was able to contact the author of the articles written by Cosmo Schiavo, and receive from him the grandparents of Benedetto Sangiovanni.

He had written his stories, from a history point of view, rather than a genealogy one.

A few days ago, a came accross this link to a 1841 letter scammed by google.

The words at the top MAROTTA - SANGIOVANNI

Would this be perhaps his 1st wife filing in behalf of her son?

Also, what does "CASSAZIONE CIVILE" mean?

"Cassazione civile" is the highest level of civil Court (after first judgement, you can turn to an Appeal Court, and, as an extreme resource, to Cassazione Civile)

SANGIOVANNI Marotta

Postby doreen2741 » 25 Oct 2013, 19:05

Hi, I'm new to this forum. Does anyone have information regarding marriages between Sangiovanni and Marotta families? My 2nd great grandmother's maiden name is Leonida Sangiovanni (b: 1806 - Laurino, Salerno). She married Giuseppe Marotta (b: 1806 - Laurino, Salerno).

Thank you.
