Maria Musto birth

Postby oilman19 » 07 Jun 2010, 20:20

Hi,
I have translated this birth act but cannot figure out the notations associated with Maria's name. Did this baby not survive?
Thank you.

Jim

Hi Jim,

If you mean the script at the end of the birth act, that is just a statement that the declarants/witnesses were illiterate so the official signed for them.

edit:

Now I see - after the name and under the name...

Yes, "senza vita" without life.

after her name in the document it says who I recognized as being without life. Senza vita is also after her name in the margin of the record.

How sad. :(
I think that was the reason I hesitated putting it on the forum.
Thank you for your help.
