Here it is...any help would be greatly appreciated. I posted it yesterday and didn't have much luck. I can make some of it out. My 2x great grandparents are Michele Scanza and Caterina Scola...I think Michele's father's name is Pietro and Caterina's father's name is Domenico...There is something written after each of their names that I can't figure out. Anything you could help with would be just great. Thanks for your time. Kristine
Michele Scanza unmarried, 24 years old, born in Mendicino, profession "Industriante" (industrialist or industrious, hard working), resident in Cosenza, son of Pietro Scanza, profession "Possidente" (land owner), resident in Cosenza, and of Vincenza Gervasi, resident in Mendicino and Caterina Scola, unmarried, 21 years old, born and resident in Cosenza, daughter of Domenico Scola, profession "Possidente" (land owner), resident in Cosenza, and of the late Gaetana de Napoli did their promise of marriage in Cosenza on 16 Oct 1853 and celebrated the marriage in the San Nicola Church in Cosenza in the same day.
Interesting! My father and his siblings grew up as "Scanza" so I did as well...must have gotten mixed up or written incorrectly at some point. I kind of started to wonder once I found something with "Scanga" on it. I am so grateful for your help. I am going to check out your website...maybe some of your services would be beneficial to my research.
