Cannot find death record

Postby rp76226 » 16 Feb 2016, 00:28

I have been trying to find the Racalmuto death record of a Giuseppe Puma who was married to Rosa Zaffuto and was deceased in 1897 when his son, Salvatore Puma, age 21, married Margherita Lentino(?) - marriage record # 75. Using his son's age of 21, I figured that he must have died between 1875 - 1897. I have all the death indices from Racalmuto, so I thought that it would be easy to find it through going through all the Giuseppe Puma deaths listed in those indices in that 22 year period. Yet, I failed to find him. Here's the link to his son's 1897 marriage indicating that he was already deceased ("fu" before his name as the father):

A marriage record For Giuseppe puma and Rosa Zaffuto would be sufficient too, but I haven't found that either.

Did you check with Raimondo if he has the death record or at least the marriage record?

No. Currently these are not my family, but that of someone I know. Maybe down the road, it may lead to my family due to the common surname and town, but I do not want to pay Raimondo unless I know it will be new information on my own family.

Livio, is there something in your link that applies to this?

I don't understand your question.

In my previous post I highlighted the surname of Salvatore Puma's wife which is Santino and not Lentino as you wrote.
