Thank you

Jim
Using a hand held magnifying glass, I can see that she was deceased Maria Gaetana, but I can't make out her surname. When I try to magnify the record otherwise, it is really out of focus and illegible.

I have to leave in a few minutes for my genealogy club meeting and presentation. If no one has deciphered the name by later this evening, I'll try to figure it out then.

I found a birth act for one of her children. It looks like Cortese.

Thank you

I'm glad you found that other record, Jim, as I would never have deciphered that surname. The supposed s in Cortese doesn't look like that letter to me, even when I compare it to other words in the document which have that letter in them.

I did make the same comparisons. Naturally, I was surprised when I saw the name on the birth act.

I hope your presentation went well.

Thanks again

I'm glad you found that birth act.

The presentation went extremely well. I talked for about 1 hour and 45 minutes. At least no one in this club will ever again say that they never heard of the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).
