annotation for marriage between Antonio Dattoli & Luisa Purcaro

1. the date of the marriage "22 8bre 1908" - is this 22 October?

2. Antonio's date of birth - 10 December 1882? if not, what is the superscript?

3. Luisa date of birth - 19 Feb 1884? or September? or.....

do you know of any resources that might explain these 'short hands" to recording months?

thanks for your help

7bre = settmbre (sette=7)
8bre = ottobre (otto=8)
9bre = novembre (nove=9)
10bre= dicembre (dice=dieci=10) this can also be found as Xbre where X=10 in Roman numbers

Antoio's birth date is December 1st (Primo dicembre = 1and a small zero as superscrtipt)
