Can you help decipher a name on a wedding certificate
« on: Saturday 29 June 19 20:37 BST (UK) »
I am trying to decipher the grooms father's first name on the following wedding certificate. I am wondering if it starts with L? I know the surname is Fusco

I think that it's either Lagaro or Lazero.

I was going with Lazzaro, but the z is different in the witnesses names. It has really confused me this 1

Looking at the enlargement, I think it is definitely a z as it has that forward stroke before the tail. However, it does look more like Lazero than Lazaro, compared with the other a.
