Re: Surname of mother of bride

The surname Maranducci did exist as early as 1576. There is a reference in the link below to a Nicolangelo Maranducci who was a notary (Archivio storico per le province napoletane, Vol 5, p. 718). https://www.google.com/books/edition/Archivio_storico_per_le_province_napolet/REpIAAAAYAAJ?hl=en&g...

Re: Sicilian church record town of origin

Matt The only baptism record I have located for an Ignazio Vitali is for one baptized in Corleone with the names Ignazio Paolo Domenico Vitali, on May 29, 1657, but his parents were Pietro and Vita. The years for his possible baptism, if it occurred in Monreale, are not missing, as far a I can tell....

Re: Sicilian church record town of origin

Matt I'm posting the link to the 1654 marriage record. I don't know if you realize that both Giuseppe and Margherita were widowed at the time of their marriage. The name of his former spouse is not given, only that he was a widower of Monreale. I see his father was deceased Giacomo (li Causi) and hi...

Re: Sicilian church record town of origin

I am finding a surname "Li Causi" online. In current Italian white pages https://www.paginebianche.it/ricerca?qs=li+causi&dv=Monreale+%28PA%29 Also seeing it in the baptism indices starting in 1850 as the first part of double surnames. It may be in earlier indices too. https://www.fami...

Re: Sicilian church record town of origin

The marriage record does indicate that the groom was never before married and was of Monreale. What I'm having trouble deciphering is what is immediately after Rosalia Vitali's name. I read "ats," which is used for the word "alias," followed by a name which is difficult to decip...

Re: Sicilian church record town of origin

Was out all day yesterday and didn't have a chance to do any genealogy. I believe those families were from the city of Palermo, based on info we've found in the records, but neither my husband nor I have ancestry from Palermo, so I only look at the online records for that area when doing volunteer r...

Re: Sicilian church record town of origin

Marriage record says he was never before married, of the city of Palermo, from infancy from this city of Monreale. I take this to mean he was born in the city of Palermo and then the parents relocated to Monreale, when he was an infant. Also the abbreviation in the record for "to live or dwell ...
