As far as I can tell Italian death records list the date and time and where a person died but not how they died. Is that correct?
I am still trying to learn italian and between not knowing Italian well and having to read old records that are in long hand I could have missed something.
My Great Grandparents died in the early 1900's. (him first in Pisa and her a few years later in Lucca) There are two stories that have been passed down in my family. One is that they died in the influenza epedemic and the other that they were in an accident. I have been able to determine by locating their death records that they died a few years apart. But I do not know why they died, they were both in thier mid twenties when they died.
He was a medical surgeon, and she was a house wife. Her death record said she died in a hospital.
Is there any record/information that I could obtain that would show the cause of death? Were there newspapers in the Lucca or Pisa area at this time?
If anyone knows of a source to look at I would be grateful
