I have attached a copy of the death record of my trisnonna (Ginepra Teresa) from Casale Monferrato. I noticed that it is stated that she is "moglie di Pilotti Gaetano". Does this mean he was definitely alive at the time of her death? Generally I have seen the term "vedova di" to indicate a widow's status. I was hoping that I might get clarification.
Liviomoreno - that is what I suspected - the problem I'm having is that I can't find the subsequent death record of her husband Gaetano who at the time of her death was 86 years old. I have searched the registers of Casale from the year of her death (1897) through 1920 and have found nothing. I suppose Gaetano could have died elsewhere, perhaps moving to a nearby town to live with one of his children, but aside from that I don't know how to locate the record.
Gaetano was born in 1812 - so I suppose I'd have to write to the Curia to attempt to get it. I have written to them in the past and unfortunately they have been quite unresponsive. Thanks for the suggestion though!
PS - I just visited your website and it's very well done.
