Help reading 1574

Post by Anizio »

Anyone good at reading Latin?

I can make out some of the important details but a lot is eluding me.

10 October 1574
Cencio figliolo di Taviano [aka. Ottaviano] da _______, sposo donna Margherita figliola di _______ alias ______ in la villa de Malatesta ......

Most importantly looking for the blanks here. I suspect the rest is mostly just typical stuff like procedure and witnesses.

TIP: When asking for records from Italy, do NOT ask for an "estratto." ALWAYS ask for a "copia integrale." A photocopy of the original Act will contain more information

Can you provide a link? It helps to be able to compare to the other handwriting on the page(s).
Places: Jaci, Palazzolo Acreide, Pedara, Trecastagni

It's not Latin, but an archaic Italian...

thanks, but pointing that out is not really in and of itself any help at all.

I think I figured out the gaps myself

Cencio di Ottaviano was from Sasferato (Sassoferrato), and Margherita was the daughter of Giovanni Maria Gambella.
