Help reading a name on a manifest

Post by apesce65 » 22 Mar 2009, 02:40

I just can't make out the name on the attached manifest

Fath: xxxxiffe?

Can anyone try looking at it and tell me the name.

Closest name I know would be Giosaffe. It looks like whoever wrote the name had some problems in the middle of it.

Do you have the complete document to which we can compare the handwriting. I do agree that my first instinct would be giuseppe but the pp resembles the F in fath a little to much and the errant dots for i make it a bit difficult to say it is giuseppe.
