Help with death document for Quintilla Brenta

Postby brenta » 29 Aug 2014, 23:03

Hi all,

Would someone kindly be able to help me with translations of Quintillas death record? She seems to be the only sibling my GG grandfather had so was just wondering if there was any information that might help track down if she married or had any children? Also if there were any clues as to whether they were anymore siblings? Two children doesn't seem very many for those days :)

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Thank you so much.

Brenta and Marty

The date of record looks like "tre" to me and so this would make the date of birth the 3rd.

I don't think this person's Christian name was Quintilla. I can't quite decipher all the letters but what I do see is Qui..lia. There is no t there. Maybe if you find the marriage record of this woman and Giacomo, the name might read clearer. Do the parents names here agree with what you already know? The surname "Salice" still appears in this town so that would be correct.

I read "Quirilia". By googling this name, there seem to be some occurrence of it.

I first read "Quisilia" but then noticed there were only three "dots" and the clerk who wrote the record has been very good at dotting all "I" letters. Then I thought it might be "Quisolia" but couldn't find any occurrence of this name. Looking again it probably does look more like an "r" than an "s".

Hi everybody
Quintilia and Quintilla were both used as feminine of Quinto. Rare, but present in northern Italy, sometimes given to a fifth born child
