Can anyone decypher #143? Might be a relative of mine. How's that for coincidence?

BIRTH #143 – GIUSEPPE LANRINO
Date of Record: 31 December 1877, 10.20 am, Frigento

Marciano Lanrino, age 30, farmer, living in Frigento reported that at 9.10 p.m. on 30 December at a place in Vico 2° Duomo, #11, his wife Maria Rosaria Solomita/Solamita?, farmer gave birth to a male baby who was given the name Giuseppe.

Gennaro Pelosi, 29, shoemaker, cobbler

(I've seen Maria Rosaria's surname spelt three different ways.)

I'd say the surname is Laurino. Lanrino seems not to exist.

Pippo, I believe you are right. The name Laurino is certainly plentiful. Thank you for the back up.

It's quite amazing though how the u and n are formed pretty much exactly the same. Is there any way to tell the difference here besides context?

Yes, in this case, and in a lot of cases, the “u” and “n” look so similar that they are hard to decipher when you are not familiar with the surname/word. If it isn't clear in the context, I compare the letters in other records e.g. if you look at the name Stanco here the “n” is so (but then again I am familiar with this surname). If I'm unsure, I might check here on IG to see if the name/word has appeared before. If not, I check the white pages to see if the name exists, (which I didn't do in this case – not all surnames are in the while pages though).

Somes times I check to see if it is clearer in the indices or I just google various spellings of a name/word and see what comes up.

If you have a look at this: http://www.italiangenealogy.com/italian ... extraction there is a section on “Italian Handwriting” which contains “some” samples which may help you. You can always post your records here on IG if you are in doubt – there will always be someone who can help :)

If you are new to reading Italian records you might find some info mentioned here helpful as well: http://www.italiangenealogy.com/forum/language/32349
