It is Latin... On September 30th, 1911, after continuous publications of banns during three successive holidays , September 10th, 17th and 24th; and having found a second degree relationship (this should mean they were first cousins...surnames of their mothers are in fact the same; anyway, there's no mention of the necessary licence they had to get in these cases) . The priest Giovanni Taglialavore married the groom Francesco Castellano, unmarried, son of Giuseppe and Giuseppa Cicero, the bride Vincenza Taglialavore, daughter of the late Giovanni and of Rosa Cicero Witnesses were Salvatore D'Anna son of Francesco and David Castellano son of Benedetto.

Thank You so much. What does it mean "continuous publications of banns" and what does the successive holidays have to do with it? I am not familiar with these terms. I do know that their mothers were sisters. Another less important question, is the priest a relative of Vincenza Taglialavore?
Thank You, I thought since the priest and Vincenza Taglialavore's father had the same name they might be cousins or something. I know it is not unusual for the people of Cianciana to have the same names.

You're welcome. I certainly wouldn't rule out the possibility that he was related, but you would need another document to prove it. Erudita
