Is father's first name "Concesio"?

Post by oncemore » 27 Apr 2015, 00:46

Death of Addea (Di Nardo) Di Giandomenico - 21 Jan 1846.

Trying to make out the father's name... Concesio? that's a commune.
Concezio?

Thank you for any help!

The given name could be either Concesso or Concezio - both are male names.

My thoughts go with Concesso - I do not see enough for a "z" formation in the script in the index; nor a "dot" over an "i" in the record...

I see Concezio, too. In record #15, there's a slight backward bend in the top of the 'z', which distinguishes it from an 's'. There also appears to be a small bend in the middle of the letter. Also, none of the other s's on the page dip below the line, but this probably doesn't mean that much. For the 'i', it appears that there was a dot, but it is smudged. The 'i' is also straight, like all the other i's on the page that I see, but not like the s's, which are curved at the top or bottom.

Livio :D and carubia :D - I defer to you both. Concezio seems more likely!

Thank you everyone!! It's a new surname in my line so I had no family group benchmarks.. First time I've seen this given name in the tree. Looks like a good starting point.. Time to find some corroborating records !
