|Bride's father name? Francesco...It is clearly a "G".|
I also found family names : Guiditti , Guiditto and Guiditta.
In some old documents I remember a rare masculine form "Giuditto" !
I'm going to flaunt my for a moment here...
To go 'off topic' (sort of) for a moment.... Aether, may I ask if the name of Giuditti, or any combination of that, may have, in centuries past, been 'anglicised' to whiddett?
|"....How important is it? It will require much more research, i.e. check in Belgium= Walloon, and in Holland. Anybody with old French , Walloon and Dutch? "|
Have you checked Lungro? I have some notes in another house, will check next time I go there. In Rende I would check with a group doing a lot of research in Cosenza . I wish I could stay there some 6 months. Fabulous grad. program combining religion, language , traditions and music!
Will let you what I may find on surnames.
My apologies to the thread owner for this brief incursion...
