Luca, I would appreciate your expertise. I posted this on another form and received some help, but there are still some difficult spots and unknown abbreviations. (You already solved the first abbreviation for me.) Thank you for checking this out!

Not easy: some abbreviations are too much shortened

Thank you very much! This helps a lot.

Is coniugibus similar to coniŭgãlis (The a should have a straight line over it.)? I'm not finding coniugibus in my Latin dictionary, but it's not a big dictionary.

Yes, the meaning is the same. This act is in italian and not in latin, but the priests (in that period) usually did use latin and, sometimes, they mixed up the two languages. So, it's not possible to choice the correct latin case (I supposed the plural ablative, but it's only a guess: 66.71.182.1/declinazio...la=coniunx ).
