Italian Handwriting Help on First Name

Postby rp76226 » 21 Jun 2012, 18:01

I can't make out the first letter of Arcangela Trabunella's mother's last name on her death certificate. Her first name is Concetta. Her last name looks like ?acaluso. Here's the link to the death certificate. http://postimage.org/image/9b884els3/
The last name appears on the last line under the registry number to the right and also six lines above the last line of the form above the signature.

Thanks Marty. Please answer one more question. The two people who appear at the Civil Office to report the death are the true witnesses of the death. The two witnesses near the bottom of the form are only there to sign their names to the form as witnesses to the form, not the death. Is that correct? One of them is Antonino Cascio, who I thought might be related because the late husband's name was Rosario Cascio. But in this case, he would not have witnessed the death.

The wording at the top of the record says appeared citzen of this town declaring the death of THE PERSON WHO DIED
Bottom witnesses are to the signing of the act of the record being recorded
