Would you ever guess that the first name is Luigia and the last name is Marchi? This is how my grandmother, born in 1886, signed her oath of naturalization.

The L certainly doesn't look like one to me! Peg
Surnames: Bertellotti - Ridolfi - Marchi

Best guess:
Luigia Marchi
she added a loop at the end of her 'L' :wink:

LUIGIA f Italian
Italian feminine form of LOUIS
