Death record help

Postby bvbellomo » 09 May 2013, 22:33

Can someone please help with the age and place of birth of Giovanna Barranco?

Also, what is listed under "profession"? I can't seem to read this handwriting.

Looks like she was novantasette (age 97) at death. Her occupation looks like filatore (spinner). Still not sure about her place of birth.

I think the place of her birth is Cefalu`

Wow! I thought that might be "novanta", but didn't think it was possible someone born in 1750 could live that long. Thanks!

I have actually seen someone in the Sicilian records as old as 105 at death. Truly unbelievable and unexpected.
