Does the matrimoni annotation say 10 Feb 1873 in Santa Maria?
Your help is appreciated.

Any idea what that little "0" represents?

Jim
The little o up in the air after a number is used for ordinal numbers such as first, second, third, fourth, fifth, etc. In Spanish, they put a little o up in the air if the number refers to something masculine, but they put a little a in the air if the number refers to something feminine. I am not sure, but I think that is the same in Italian. It's just an abbreviated way of writing first, second, third, etc, using a number instead of the word.

Hi Jim,

The number one with a superscript "0" is the notation for "primo" which means "first" :-)

It indicates an abbreviation. The date is not 1 February 1873 but actually "1st" (of) February 1873.

1° or 1ª = 1st
2° or 2ª = 2nd
3° or 3ª = 3rd
4° or 4ª = 4th
5° or 5ª = 5th

° when followed by a masculine noun, ª when followed by a feminine noun.

Okay, so I was a couple of minutes late.

But, I included the extra information masculine/feminine!

It's always a matter of which one of us types faster, and it's usually you, as I have always been, and still am, a terrible typist.

Good morning, T.

I have read that it did, but I have never seen the feminine form in an Italian document, at least I don't recall seeing it.

I wasn't familiar with this practice. Usually, I see the word "primo" written in the blank space.
I appreciate the education.
