Location near Florance

Postby minder » 31 Mar 2014, 02:00

Good morning

Can anyone identify this town. It came from a circa 1764 Portuguese document pointing to a baptism.

"Anna Sestini, native of Parish of St. Martin of Gangalânida, Archbishop of Florence in Tuscany".

Thanks

Peter

Not yet. Found Florence Archdiocese data from 1600's:
http://www.catholic-hierarchy.org/diocese/dfire.html#abd

Same page lists current website for diocese (In Italian)

Google Translate recognises Gangalânida as Filipino.

Hope this helps,
