Hi Debbie, and you see also in death acts? it is usual that the twins they born one after other... if the first died some minutes after the birth,
the second twin can have same first name... you read the complete birth act? the act's number are 24 and 25... so it must are 2 birthacts... in same day, from same parents... frankly it would have to read all documents that you have... however Giuseppa right spell, is female version of Giuseppe, and Giuseppina is the female diminutive of Giuseppa... just a suggestion, regards, suanj
Suanj is right.
To me it seems that the first name has been corrected from GIUSEPPA to GIUSEPPE (or viceversa). Maybe the first tween was a male?
Are you sure that the name in the first birth act isn't GIUSEPPE?
Could you post it?
Suanj and Incipit, you have both posed very good questions. Some I have asked my self. These birth acts I copied very early into my Italian genealogy quest exploring this family. I have gone through all the birth, marriage and death records from 1821 - 1910. I can tell you the father, Alfonso Faldetta was the only person of that name. He was the only son of an only son. There is no way that two cousins (both named Alfonso Faldetta) married women with the same name.
Hi it is same child, a female child born in 19.00 hours( 7.00 PM) of 10 May 1887 and died as you know.. the registration was made from same grandmother, and same withness, but the first to hour 7.00 A.M of 12 May 1877, and the second to 13.00 (1.00 P.M.) of 12 May 1877, ... it could be a error of double registration and most probable it must cancelled in some other registry part... only 1 child .... regards, suanj
When I found these birth records, early in my research I assumed they were twin girls, but couldn't quite figure out what both names were. I was surprised when the comune gave me a print out of children born to these parents and it only had one girl for this date.
You have helped me to understand what happened. Same child, birth recorded twice. It seems it would be more logical to just add a correction or additon in the margin, but that's not what the offical did.
Thanks for helping me understand this.
Hugs to Suanj and Incipt. I will keep church records in mind, if I try and venture there. I looked at some records for San Cataldo - WOW they were to much for me to decipher.
