Hello all, I am trying to establish the parentage of my ancestress Giacoma , wife of Paolo Pistone of Carini Sicily. I have located the baptisms of all her children spanning 1616-1631. In two of them is listed as godmother a woman named Giacoma Pizzo. The most interesting of all is that is was for the couple's second daughter, which usually the honor is bestowed upon the maternal grandmother. I am trying to decifer the relationship listed on the other baptism. It calls Giacoma La Lomari. Is that midwife? If so, would it be unusual for a woman to deliver her own grandchild? If you notice two baptisms above her is another where she is listed as MaMana..I just assume thats midwife but if not...HELP! I attach the image. My ancestor is the Giovanna Pisano, daughter of Paolo and Giacoma. Thanks a lot!
where are Giacoma la Comare...? I read an Giacoma Sangodini ... are this?
I read( 1 and 2 baptism act):
1-Vincenza Lo Picciolo figlia di Sebastiano e Rosa Lo Picciolo Ing. fu battezzata in casa ab urgentem necessitatem per Giacoma Pizo, Mamana, et fu portata in Chiesa et li foro assuptite le ceremonie del battesimo per D. (don) Stefano RENDA cappuccino liteneti* e Gasparo di Martino et Antonia Zito.
2-Giacoma Sangodini(O Sargodini) figlia di M.no Vincenzo e Maria Sangodini in Ingto fu battezzata in questa chiesa da Antonio Rottino cappuccino liteneti* Marc'Antoni et Vincenza Iavagose(??hard reading)
*liteneti= lo tenne a battesimo= godfather and godmother;
