Translation Help Please

Postby AngelaGrace56 » 10 Sep 2013, 23:38

Looking at the following link can I please have LAROSSA MARIA INDEX NO 3 Death Act translated, (as fully as possible).

https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/T ... 1211340491

I’m somewhat puzzled by it. Thank you, Angela

Thank you so much for persevering Tessa and for the translation. I really appreciate this. :D

I’ve googled Contrada Fontana and it is definitely a street in Grumento Nova. I had wondered whether she had died in another town as I had not come across this street name before. My understanding from the other records I have for Maria Larossa and Luigi Vertunni is that they lived at 380 via Peruzzo. Their chiildren’s birth records and Luigi’s death record all show this. (Their last babe Rosolia was born January 1892 and died the following year aged 18 months.)

My question is: might there have been a hospital at Contrada Fontana back in the late 1800s? Was there anything else written in this death act that might suggest this or how she died?


Thank you again. Angela

Usually if someone died in a hospital, that would be mentioned in the death act.
There is no mention of a hospital in this act.

It does indicate that the local official received notice from "Signor Vice Pretore Comunale" - and it mentions something about the volume of allegati (attachments) in this register... No numbers or references...

FYI - Italian death records rarely indicate a cause of death.
