"daughter of unknown parents" place of birth: Asti?

Postby Sus80 » 13 Jul 2015, 20:36

Hello,

I am curious to know what a mentioning of a place of birth means when the person's parents are not known.
An ancestor, named Maggiorina Gelvitto, who married in Struppa in 1888 (age 24), gave as place of birth Asti, but states her parents are unknown. Is this place most likely the place of the orphanage/foster family, or where she was christened? Does it make any sense to try and find records for her in Asti?

Thank you..

hi,
if she said the truth, Asti is the place where she was born and where was wrote the her birth registration, and if she was a foundling it is also the place where she was found... she can be christened in Asti or in other place... if she married in Struppa, you can find her Birth certificate issued in 1888 in the 1888 Allegati di Matrimonio of Struppa, so you can know the her birthdate and birthplace, some other info you can find by marriage banns...
regards,
