Latin Death Record

Postby oemorg » 06 Oct 2013, 22:10

Please verify:

Pasqaule Micieli, husband of Felica Iorio died 27 Oct 1799 at the age of about 68 in San Lucido in the Parish of St. John the Baptist.

Please correct me if I am wrong and let me know of any other valuable info, like his parents' names.

Thanks,
Greg

Looks correct, Greg. There are no parents' names in the record. The only other thing is that he was buried in the parish church (you have the name of the church). I understand that the burial occurred about 24 hours after he died.

Erudita,

I am not sure what you mean when you say "buried in the parish church". Please explain.

Thanks again,
Greg

At that time people were wrapped and put under the floor of the church. Babies and children to the left of where the altar was above with women on the left and behind the children. Important and noble men to the right and front with poor men behind the nobility. When the bodies decayed, the bones were put together in a communal place.

Ann,

Thanks for the explanation. I knew because of the lack of land in Italy that cemetery plots were recycled. I did not know that regular people were buried in the churches.
