Typewritten paragraph is the common legal description of the Civil Code and the procedure (one takes the other, etc.) Witnesses present to this act: Giuseppe Parente, 26, peasant farmer Patrizio Viccarone, 26, landowner Mariano di Massa, 36, laborer Gaetano di Massa, 27, laborer
Official signed for himself and several of the witnesses.
The ** next to Giovanna's name is a notation at the bottom right of the record stating that she was born in this town of Coreno (Official probably forgot to write that in above ) T.
My understanding... It refers to the age... whether the year of that age was completed. Age 23 not completed just means he/she hasn't finished their 23rd year. It's found in some records and not in others.
