#1: 1650 marriage record? Author: JB5150, Location: FloridaPosted: Tue Sep 27, 2011 12:17 am ---- I'm back from my Italy trip and it was absolutely great as far as research goes--just wish I could have had more time with the records! Seems that there is a wedding nearly every day at the church there, so time for researchers is limited. In any event, I was able to go back another 100 years on my Barone line and now I have several more wonderful Latin records that I can barely read. (At least I can make out the names, which is the important part!)
I'm attaching a copy of the oldest one that I found on the Barone line which is from 1650. I think the name of the father here is Vincenzo, but I wasn't able to find him in a prior index, so it's either not Vincenzo or he was married somewhere else. (Vincenzo would make the most sense though, since the son of Pasquale is also Vincenzo).
Anyway, I know several of you are Latin experts, so I'd be grateful for your help interpreting this one. (I have a couple more, but those can wait...)
I should have a full report of my trip (including research in Palermo, Modica, severely delayed luggage and flat tires!) soon!

One question-- since "quondam" translates as "formerly" am I correct to assume that person is deceased? In this case, it looks like Margarita (mother of the groom) and Vincenzo (father of the bride) are deceased and we aren't sure about Vincenzo (the father of the groom)?
