What does "alibi" (?) mean in Marriage Indices

Postby lcafarel » 17 Feb 2011, 23:59

I'm reading through the Indice Annuale Matrimoni for Laurenzana, Potenza, Basilicata for 1874, and the brides names are all followed with what looks like "(alibi)." Does anyone know what that means and indeed if I'm reading it correctly?

Is it something like "unattached?"

Hi :-)

I just took a look at the indice and what I think you are seeing is "celibi" which means "single - or unmarried" - referring to both spouses...
