Re: name & address of the cemetery in Bettolle, Italy

The information you provide about cemetery policy is very helpful. My direct ancestors have a masoleum erected in the cemetery. I want to obtain the names of the ancestors who are buried inside this structure. They were well-off financially. So I am still seeking the name and address of the cemetery...

Re: Italian names

Thanks again. I have a question about surnames that are very similar. My father's surname in Italy is Agnoloni from Tuscany region. There is also a surname Angeloni from this same region. Would these names represent the same family in ancient times? I ask this because my mother's surname is Pinney. ...

Re: Italian names

Thank you your answer is really informative. I assume that arcangiolo and angiolo are also the same name but the arc version is older. Am I correct? Patricia

Re: orphans & illegitimate children in italy 1850

What years are you looking for. I have had good luck with the towns that I have requested info from. Also the few churches that I have contacted have also been responsive.

Re: orphans & illegitimate children in italy 1850

It is my understanding that the illegitimate child was not given a nobility name but rather the unwed mother/family sometimes explained the illegimate birth by reporting that the father was a person of nobility. I consider the naming of illegitimate children to be an important topic for those intere...

Re: orphans & illegitimate children in italy 1850

I've read and have been told that many of these foundlings were given "names of Noblity" after being adopted. Who decided on these names? Was it the adoptive family, the levatrice or the mayor? Or was it just arbitrary? I'm sure these naming practices led to several family legends that claim orphan...

Re: orphans & illegitimate children in italy 1850

If the infant was not adopted then either placed in a foster home or orphanage why would the town where the child was abandoned differ from the town wherein the infant was placed? Also was there an age when the town would no longer be financially responsible for the child? Thank you again for the in...

orphans & illegitimate children in italy 1850

Does anyone know who cared for babies who were foundlings in the 1850s in the Tuscany region if they were not adopted? Were there orphanages or foster homes in existence at this time? thanks for any info

Re: name of bride's father on marriage certificate

Thank you. I looked up some italian names that begin with M and found Minna short for domenica could this be a possibility? Does this mean that Allesandra was illegitimate? patrica
