Need help with gf first name

Post by Marianne D » 08 Mar 2015, 04:25

Hello,

My grandfather was Antonio De Palma of San Bartolomeo in Galdo. Attached is part of a document and I am having difficulty figuring out a prefix? to Antonio. Could anyone help clarify what this is?!

This (partial) document has information about my father's birth.

Thank you for your help!

I read: De Palma Don Antonio. "Don" is a title given to prominent people in the village or town.

Edited: The correct name is De Palma Donatantonio

Livio, I'm clearly reading "Donatantonio". What do you think?

Thank you, I have never seen that variation of my gf name.
Could you help me one more time by confirming the year, is it 1904 or 1908 or ?
Thanks again.
