On what appears to be a church document that was included with marriage prossessetti on a film from Campobasso, an ancestor of mine was referred to as " Signore Parroca Don Serafino di Giuseppe Maglieri". At the end of document he signed his name " L'Parroca Serafino Maglieri". Could someone tell me if he was a priest, although I did not see the word prete anywhere. This was from 1822.
Thank you very much for any help.
Yes, the mentioned person was a priest. You can guess it by the word "parroco" (the final "a" is probably a mispelling) which means "parish priest".
So, don Serafino Maglieri, son of Giuseppe Maglieri, was the parish priest of the parish church mentioned in your document.
Hope this helps.
