Help with 1748 Revelli

Postby bvbellomo » 20 Jan 2014, 17:06

Attached is a page of the 1748 Polizzi Revelli

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/3322562/records/misc/Revelli/E%20Palmeri%20Gandolfa.png

To me, the name looks like 'Gandolfa Palmeri'. Is this a female? If so, is Palmeri her father's surname? her hudsband's surname? Her children's?

"Animes" listed are:
Giovanna
Apottonio son 5
Calogero son 5
Antonino son 3
Giuseppa daughter

Who was Giovanna? What was her age? What was Giuseppa's age?

Unfortunately, the image is rather poor. Name of the person actually seems to be Gandolfa, so that would be a woman. name of one of the children is Apollonio; can't read what is written after Giovanna (might be "madre", but not sure).
Below, it states she (or he) owns a vineyard in xxx Sottana.
that's all I can read :cry:
Giuseppe "Pippo" Moccaldi

Unfortunately, the familysearch equipment is rather poor, I can read clear text on the actual films, but I cannot make good copies.

It is definitely 'Gandolfa' and not 'Gandolfo'. What I was asking is whether this is definitely a female, and if so, whether her children would also have the 'Palmeri' surname, or whatever surname her husband had.

The picture you posted shows both the last page of a rivelo (census) (that of Gandolfa Palmeri) and the first page of another rivelo, that of Giovanna Collesano with her children Apollonio and Cologero (both 5 years old), Antonino (3 years old) and Giovanna. In the Riveli the age of women were not mentioned.
