Very pleased to announce that today I have been contacted by Margaret Fay to advise that she has discovered the following Marriage Announcement in the archives of the Newcastle Courant dated Saturday 1st January 1898 :

On the 10th December, 1897, at the Municipality, Rome, and church of SS. Vincenzo and Anastasio, Amy, daughter of  Mr. Edward Dawson of Whitley, to Giovanni, son of Dona Maria and the late Don Leopoldo Barbaro of Amalfi, Italy.    

Many thanks to Margaret for sharing this information and solving the mystery of Amy and Giovanni's marriage.

The biography of Giovanni Barbaro will now be updated.
