I strongly believe this is a sibling. However there seem to be some discrepancies that I will have to deal with.
I need a better translation than I can do for this new document. It has an extra page of many names which I can't figure out.
I have a film with many of these Atti di Matrimonio documents. Is there a format I can follow to try to translate the other ones? It looks like a lot of additional info over the more current Atti's.

This is the Act of the solemn promise to celebrate Matrimony
1836 February 3 @ 1 PM before the officer of the town appeared...
Francesco Saverio Rauccio, 32, born in SMCV, farmer, residing on Strada Pietrasanta, son of Raffaele, farmer residing with his son and Rosa diNardo, spinner residing with her husband and son;
Maria Rosa diLaurenzo (sp?), 25, seamstress born in SMCV, residing Street named above, daughter of Arcangelo, farmer who is residing with his daughter, and Maria (xxxx) Tescione, spinner residing with her husband and daughter, widower of Domenica Santoro.
Can you help me prove (or disprove) this is my GGGM's sister?
*could be same mother (Irene Tescione?)
*would it be likely to have 2 Maria's with different middle names? I've seen it but not often.
Deep down inside I just know it is my GGGgrandparents. Is it wishful thinking?

As for the name...your experience (and mine) demonstrates that these records can have many variations in handwriting, spelling, etc. I don't think that at the time the records were written anyone ever expected them to be viewed with the detail we give them...
Soooo - it makes our journey through them that much less "routine"
