Same person or two different people?

Postby dbotig » 01 Jan 2016, 02:10

I found the death records of two Giampiatro's that both have the same parents. The only problem is they have two different dates of death. I don't speak Italian so I'm having the most trouble with the handwritten record. I am able to extract some info from the records, but I'm just wondering if I am misinterpreting the records. Are they the same person and I'm reading the dates wrong or are they different people and their parents named two of their children the same name?

It was common practice that when a child died to give the next child born the same name. Allow me to suggest that you look for a death and birth record for the first child during the specified time frame of his/her birth and the next child's birth. Good luck

I didn't know that that was common practice, so thank you for that information. I think I have the birth record for the second child so they were never alive at the same time. It makes sense now! Thanks again.
