Trying to find Lucia Minutella

Postby Athena » 19 Oct 2016, 02:29

I've been trying to find a death record on Lucia Minutella, born abt. 1831. I know her father was Rosario Minutella, mother unknown. Lucia married Santi Prestianni, he died in 1885.
I found a Lucia in the 1906 morti in Castelbuono widow of another man,father Rosario. Is it possible that she remarried, did they do that back then?
Any help on her would be great. I've hit a brick wall.

Thank u,
Tracy

Yes, people did remarry.

You might want to search for a marriage for Lucia between 1885 and 1906, to confirm or disprove this death record. :-)

Can you post the link to Lucia's death act?

Thank you MMogno

I don't know how I missed that.
Would it say if she was a widow before she married, if she was married before?
I can't read it can u tell me her age?
I was hoping to find one of her Children's names to see if this is the right person since I can't find a death record. Is there a any other place to look at morti from 1910 on? She may have died after that, would be my guess.

I'm going to guess this is my 3rd great-grandmother. Her father's name is right, no other record told her mother's name; so this is the first time seeing it.

Thank you all.
