Monticelli, Esperia (FR)

Post by James Graham » 18 Jun 2016, 20:20

Monticelli is the origin of most of my maternal side of the family.

FamilySearch has many marriage records for the area.
Some are Monticelli and others, Monticello, which I figure is a transcription error.
Someone on the site emailed me and questioned this. They stated that they are two separate hamlets. I asked for something to clarify this. Their reply, "This is what my grandmother called it."

Here is a sample record:
https://familysearch.org/tree/#view=anc ... n=MYDP-59J

The record hint has the couple married in Monticello, groom born in Monticelli and the bride born in Roccaguglielma.

Could someone chime in and give their judgement on this before I make a mess of the records?

I would like to see the original document, not the transcription

Me too.
So far I have not found any history for a Monticello but that doesn't mean it didn't exist at one time.
