Need assistance reading Italian surname on death certificate

Postby nwkate » 09 Oct 2012, 23:25

Hi! I am trying to determine the mother's maiden name on a US death certificate. Not being familiar with Italian surnames I can't even begin to guess.

And of course the record is not on a public site, so if you are willing to give it a try, you can email me at kate@historyandheritage.co and I will send it to you.

Any help or suggested names will be greatly appreciated!

I am trying something new here - Donna coached me through how to get the image online, so hopefully this is it and you can look at it without contacting me! If it works, thanks to Donna. If not, 100% my fault!

It worked! Great job! :-)

The surname looks like SCALINGI to me...

That name is found today in the Regions of Lazio and Abruzzo (a few in Campania Region)

Great, and thank you Tessa! It's always perfectly clear once someone tells you what it says!

(Now I wonder how her son ended up in Sicily before he made it to America!)
