i cannot make out the mother's last name:
Nicolosia Avodolo???

I included two records for handwriting comparison.

thanks for your efforts,

thanks, livio. i also looked through the index and could not find a name beginning with an A or M which ended in olo. AND, the indexer wrote in such beautiful caligraphy that the As and Ms look nothing like the handwriting.
