Appreciate your help to identify father's comune

Postby CowryShells » 08 Jun 2010, 22:57

Here is a birth record from the province of Foggia. Please help me be sure of the father's comune. (He is from a different comune than the one where his daughter was born.)
This is what I read, "Francesco Risoldo di Rodi"

I looked up Rodi and found a Rodi Garganico in Foggia. Is this the comune referred to?

Thank you for taking a look at this for me.

I believe the town would be Rodi Garganico, as it is the only one in the province of Foggia which has Rodi in its name. I see a town in Sicily named Rodi Milici, but I would go with the Rodi Garganico, since it is in the same province as the one in which the daughter was born.

Yes, his daughter was born in Sammarco in Lamis, Foggia, which is very near Rodi Garganico. :-)
