68 or 78 years old at time of death?

Postby stellina13 » 15 Apr 2014, 22:09

I can't tell if it's "sessantotto" or "settantotto" in the following two records. Looks like it could be either. What do you think? I think it's sessantotto (68) but not sure

record on the left - death of Giovanni Acconcia, was he 68 or 78?

and the record of his wife, Orsola Ianni, 68 or 78? - record on left

thank you!

I would agree that it is 68. If you look at the record after Orsola's the age 46 is there and then the word questo further down and the "s" in these words look very similar. Also the "s" in these words are through the line etc.
