Latin Question

Postby sacesta » 08 Jun 2016, 22:29

I had a very good day at my local FHC today despite losing half of the records I scanned.

I scanned 48 records and I should have been saving them to my USB drive, but got carried away. When I went to save the records, the computer crashed due to lack of memory and I lost everything. I had only enough time to find and re-scan 24 of the most significant ones before the FHC closed.

I've been looking for siblings of those in my tree and had some very good luck today. I found records for three 2nd great grandparents and many records for their siblings. The records were in very good shape and easy to read.

I do have one question - On the record of baptism for one of my 2nd great grandfathers (Camillo Papa) before the phrase "ex natum Antonio Papa.." appears what looks to me to be "hodie" or "ho die". There looks to be another O almost directly above the first. There is no date of birth shown. Does this word (or words) mean "same day" or something similar? Can I assume Camillo was born on the same day he was baptized?

I'd upload the image but Photobucket has been a bitter pill for the past few hours.

I greatly appreciate your help,

Steve

Steve
The Latin word hodie means today (so it should whatever date is at the top of the record).
