Help - handwriting difficult to read - Serafini records

Postby Elizabeth MAT » 27 Mar 2015, 02:34

Hi ...

Looking for some help deciphering 3 records which may relate to my family - Serafini from Barga.

I don't need a specific translation, just the main facts to see if they tie in with anything I have found out so far. I am finding some of the writing hard to decipher especially since I have no knowledge of Italian.

My great grandparents were Antonio and Carlotta (nee Bonella) Serafini, farmers around Tiglio. Leopoldo, their son, my grandfather, was born in 1875 - recorded in Barga.

While looking for Antonio and Carlotta's marriage record in the Barga, Lucca records for 1866-1878 I found 3 other marriage records for Serafini. These are:

(1) Image #89 Bartolommeo Serafini & Teresa Funai in 1866
(2) Image #104 Giovanni Serafini & Rosa Talo in 1866
(3) Image #359 Carlo Serafini & Elvira Perpoli in 1867

I haven't yet found my great grandparents marriage record. Does it seem that any of the three above are related in anyway and could they be related to Antonio?

I would really appreciate some help with this. I'm also doing this research on an iPad, not a computer, so I am finding it limiting as to what I can manipulate.

Thank you ...Elizabeth

(My grandparents were Leopoldo and Rosa (nee Santi) Serafini.)

Hi Tessa ...

Once again I have to thank you for your help. I'm beginning to feel more comfortable finding my way around, but it's wonderful to have individuals like yourself that one can seek help from.

Have a nice day.
