Hi Yasmina,

What records do you have on Ida's life? e.g. where did you get "near Naples" and her father's name from?

The best place to start is to get as much info about Ida's life as possible so as to focus where to look in Italy.
 - emigration (any accompanying family? what places named? any naturalisation paperwork, either for her or for her husband - that might give her details)
 - marriage (what information about family - e.g. father's name, occupation)
 - children (family names used?)
 - death
 - obituary
 - wills

Barnet. 14 years ago. Her maiden surname apparantly denotes her father was a founding we think

Hi Yasmina,

I see on the index that she is listed in 1946 with two surnames - Esposito and Martin - why is this? What exactly does the marriage certificate say about her (marital status, address), her father (occupation), and what were the names of the witnesses to marriage?

Esposito is a foundling surname in origin but it doesn't mean it was her father - could be several generations back that received that name. It's also one of the most common names in Italy so we really need to try and tease as much info out of her life in the UK before attempting to jump back to Europe.

Thank you for the interest.

I can give you the uk history and where she came from.  I'm enquiring about her family ba kground for her daughter.

I shall give you all the details when I have retrieved them from her daughter

I tried to add the print out but it was apparently too long a document to copy.

Basics
Raffaelo,  idas father  , was the foundling. His father a scandinavian sailor and his mother an Italian girl. He was brought up and educated by local monks.

Also he was known as el savio, due to his literacy.

Born caivano 27 september 1920.

I would guess from the above that there is likely to be no further information. The daughter says she has no idea how the name martin was attached to her mother.  Thank you.
