Monreale marriage

Post by cj11788 »

Hello,

The below link and attachment is the 1634 Monreale marriage of Benedetto Fabiano and Caterina Ribando. I see where Benedetto is from but I don't understand where Caterina is from. It looks like she is from Monreale, but all the others words after her parents are difficult to read.

Thanks

Chris

Hi Erudita,

I'm curious. I see that Benedetto and his parents; Augostino and Caterina Fabiano are from Piana dei Greci but what words after Caterina and her parents, Pietro and Antonia Ribando mention she is a widow and from Piana dei Greci.

Were you referring to Caterina Fabiano?

Thanks

Chris

Chris-sorry but I originally misread the record. Both spouses are widowed. Benedetto is a widower from Genoa but living in Piana dei Greci. Caterina Ribando is also a widow. The name of her deceased husband is in the record. His first name Giovanni written as Gianni in the Record. I can't decipher his last name but he was from Monreale. Erudita

The word viduo and vidua for widower/widow. There's another word after vidua which I can't decipher.

Yes Domenico is the first name of Caterina's previous spouse. They were married Aug 23, 1632 #50. His last name appears as Gianni in that record. Matrimoni 1621 to 1640 image 270 of 427. Same parish.
