Marriage and death record combined?

Postby rp76226 » 04 Jan 2014, 00:30

This 1918 marriage record of Vito Lorusso and Antonia Ostuni also lists him as a widower from her in 1967. Never saw anything like this before. Can anyone explain what happened here. It looks like it was written all at the same time, not years later and that the form was made to do both.

I believe this is a "reconstructed" book of marriage acts for 1918.

If you go to the cover of the book (image 12), you will see that it was created in 1969.
This can happen when records have been destroyed by natural disaster, war, etc., and need to be reconstructed.
In this case Vito appeared (on 16 April 1969) to give the information about the marriage that took place 25 March 1918. Antonia's death date is part of the identification of Vito as the widower of Antonia.

Basically the document reads:

The year 1969 April 16 at 11:30am in the town hall of Altamura.
Before me, Giovanni Rizzi, Civil State Officer, authorized by the court of Bari to reconstruct the book registers for 1918 and 1919, that were burnt by the April 27 1919, appeared Vito Lorusso, born in Altamaura May 10 1895, son of late Michele and of late Teresa Minivaggi, widower of Antonia Ostuni since March 3 196, who declared:
On March 25 1918 he married Antonia Ostuni, born in Altamura 7 Aug 1896, daughter of deceased Angelo and deceased Maddalena Cannito
