Just starting to dabble with the Italian ancestors.  In this post, I think I confuse even myself since everyone is Teresa/Theresa.  Any recommendations for better ways to write up and keep track of all the Teresa's?  Would including a tree with something like the NGSQ numbering help a reader keep track?  Any recommendations to go along with my potential next steps?

Is anyone familiar with the term (or name) "Maguccio"? I'm guessing on the spelling. My grandfather says it means "Domenic," but he always uses it with a definite article, referring to his grandfather as "The Maguccio," and I'm trying to figure out what it really means or refers to.

In 19th century Italy, were married women known by their maiden or married names? I was under the impression that they continued to be known by their birth names, but am not finding any of my female ancestors under their birth names when browsing death records on Antenati. Am I looking for the wrong names? Or is it just coincidence that I've come across a number of male ancestors and no female ones?

I know very little about Giuseppe Fratoddi. I estimate his date of birth to be about 1830. He was married to Flavia Salieri. The surname Fratoddi is rare, even in Italy. Per my cousin Manlio Fratoddi, Giuseppe lived in Rome a...

I just got the certificato di nascita for my great grandmother. I need help translating. I'm also wondering why she was Giulia Massucci then recognized as Giulia Montagna?? I asked for help from the Italian Genealogy group on that other social network :-), Best guess is the mother chose to remain anonymous and she was given the last name of the midwife?? Then the marriage of her parents was verified and last name changed to Montagna, or they married in 1896 after her birth? I'd love to hear your opinion.
