Can anyone figure out her last name?

Postby JTareco » 08 Nov 2016, 00:31

Death certificate from Valledolmo, Sicily for my 4th great grandmother Maria Ricotta in the upper right. Her parents are Rosolino and Rosaria. Can not figure out her last name.

or even from the index #19

I think it's Pigrolunti (index) or Pignolunti (certificate)

Looking at the deccenial indicies didn't shed much light. The "Indici decennali (morti) 1887-1896" shows a cluster of Pizrolanti; the "Indici decennali (nati) 1887-1896" shows a cluster of either Pizrolanti or Pizzolanti depending on if there are two styles of "z"; the marriage indicies suggest Pizzolanti.

Thanks all, this took a week to post and I figured it out, it's Pizzolanti.

Do all new topics need to be approved before they are posted?

If I recall correctly, my first post was delayed. Everything else has appeared almost immediately.
