Hello,
I was really happy to obtain the information in my great grand parents marriage certificate but am having trouble deciphering the hand writing particularly in the "Surname of Mother and Father" fields. Im only 100% about Luigi Monico. I could really use a second set of eyes on this This is what I came up with so far,.



Angelo Nardozi
Surname of Mother and Father:
Father:Vincenzo
Mother:Filomena Pantanelli

Maddalena Appoloneo (Monico)
Surname of Mother and Father:
Father:Luigi Monico
Mother:Theresa ?
Any ideas would be appreciated.
Thank you

Presumably it is a typo on your part, but the father is Monico, not Monic, which I would not have bothered with but it helps with the final letter of the mother's name. Clearly, to me at least, this name ends in an R not an O. There are several examples of words ending in O. None of them has an upper tail leading off of it. If you look at the word September, it has a similar upper tail.

Thank you very much. I see the O on Monico now. Makes sense, there were many variations on that name with it originally being Lomonico.

If you we're to take a guess on the last name of "Teresa" and "Filomena" what would you come up with?

Thanks for your help.

Well, for Filomena I agree with your reading of Pantanelli.

For Teresa I think it may be written with an H, as Theresa. Whether this is a mistake by whoever filled in the form I can't say. It is one of those names where you get variable spellings.

As for her maiden name, I looked at that for a while before I wimped out and pointed out it ended in an R. Just can't make it out.

Do you think the "r" at the end of Theresa's last name also resembles the "E" at the end on word "None" written above? Almost like a uppercase e.
The letters that I feel I'm am recognizing based off the other hand writing on the document
Theresa (Don*t*se)
So frustrating! Lol

In short, no.

None is written twice and the shape, if not the angle, of the E is consistent, and not like the last letter of that name.

I believe the mother's first name is "Theresa"
For the last name, I think it says "Dont know."
