Surname Decrecento?

Postby Poipuo4 » 30 Jan 2007, 15:44

I just obtained my great grandparents' marriage certificate from New York. It has the names of my great great grandparents (who remained in Italy): Nicola Insarda and Alfonsina Decrecento. I am not sure if I am making out the handwriting for Alfonsina's last name. It could be Decrecinto. Is that familiar with anyone? I know they are Calabrese. My great grandfather was from Feroletto.

Unfortunately, I just have a hard copy of the certificate and no access to a scanner right now. However, thank you for that link. It brought up some names that would be pronounced the same way, such as DeCrescentio.
