Surname Jagano in Corleone

How common was the surname Jagano in Corleone? The last entry Filippa Jagano. Is it possible that she was actually from a nearby town? Thanks for the input.

The document you offer is written in Latin and the name is most likely Pagano. Perhaps you might want to borrow or purchase a book Italian Genealogical records by Ta=rafford R. Cole and read the section relating to Italian civil, ecclesiastical records. Peter

I believe the surname is written in the church document as Sagana, but is actually Sagona, which exists in the town. Look at the way the capital F is formed in the name Franciscus in one of the entries above. Marty, it is not formed the same way as the small f which has a tiny line off to the side of it. Nor does the name start with the letter P, as suggested by Peter. This entry alone has examples of how the capital P was formed. It also does not begin with the letter J. We have the name Joseph in entries on this page to compare the beginning letter of this surname to the formation of the letter J. You can also look at the surname Santova in the entry above this one.

Thanks for the help...If it is Sagana (Sagona), then that surname is common in Alia..

It would be interesting to see this surname written in another document for comparison. I just know that sometimes surnames in the Latin church records were spelled differently from what we later find in the state civil records.
BTW, was there an index with this set of records? That could also be of help in seeing how the surname was alphabetized, that is, if the records weren't alphabetized by first name, which they often were.
