Unsure of Marriage Act Month

Postby mdyer » 15 Apr 2012, 01:16

I'm trying to make out the month for the marriage act linked below, but I'm unfamiliar with the abbreviation being used. It looks like the 28th day of 1818, but not sure about the month. I appreciate any help. Thanks! http://postimage.org/image/744wj31id/

Also, while we're at it, I'd appreciate help making out the first name in this document. The surname is Lopa. Thanks! http://postimage.org/image/66l7hytuv/

The date looks like "9bre" which would be November (9=nove)
So it is the day 28 of November 1818.

The given name of Lopa looks like "Faustina"
