Is the wife's name Presede?

Post by stellina13 » 30 Jan 2016, 21:39

I am attaching the following marriage record for Francesco Musti and Presede?? Cesareo.

Does it say Presede? Never heard that name before. Could it possibly be a nickname for the name Eufrasia?

Any assistance you can give would be greatly appreciated.

There is a female name... Prassede. :-)
Maybe the "a" has faded.
There I is also Prasseda.

I read Pressede (double s) and in the birth extract (img 41) the name is Presseda. Just a misspelling of the name Prassede. If you look at the original birth record it clearly states Prassede Pasqua http://www.antenati.san.beniculturali.i ... ewsIndex=0
In any case it has nothing to do with Eufrasia.
